Old French "Breton" violin of Mirecourt - JTL oder Laberte

This beautiful French Breton violin is a very good sounding handmade instrument of Mirecourt, made around 1910. The trademark Breton was used by several of the large Mirecourt makers until the 1950ies, among them Maison Laberte and the renowned house of Jérôme Thibouville-Lamy. This French Breton violin is made from attractive and quality materials. The wood of the table is medium grained spruce, the two piece back is made of mildly flamed maple. The archings are very nicely worked out. The glossy varnish is of an intense orange/brown color over a golden yellow ground, in very good condition. This good French violin is crackfree and with some other minor repairs (back seam, button) well preserved and has been meticoulously worked over and set up by our violin makers to fine playing condition. Her beautiful bright sound is well-balanced, clear and of good strength, open, warm, resonant and with some charming mellow undertone.
