Charming antique French violin after Antonio Stradivari

This charming French violin after Antonio Stradivari is a beautiful antique instrument of the early 20th century, that was built approx. 19200 most presumably in the Laberte workshops in the famous violin making town Mirecourt. This violin, a Stradivarius copy that is labelled accordingly, was very successfully crafted of perfectly chosen tonewoods, with a beautifully antiqued varnish of golden-brown color over a golden-yellow ground. The scratched pufling indicate that the violin is a trade instrument in times of increasing demand of affordable instruments. Meaningful traces from playing complete the appearance of the antique violin, that is preserved in excellent, crack-free condition. This recommendable French violin was - like all Corilon instruments - worked over by our luthier, who applied beautiful ebony parts, a new bridge, soundpost and Pirastro strings and made it ready to play. We highly recommend its charming sound, that is of a warm character, sonorous and with beautiful resonance and strength.
