Charles Claudot "Le Marquis de lair", antique French violin, approx. 1850

This powerful antique 19th century French violin by Charles Claudot has an outstanding tone in the price range. It is one of the works that Claudot Charles stamped "Le Marquis de lair doiseaux" on the back, this name should later be purchased by the J.T.L. and Laberte manufactories well for the use as a trademark on their cheaper quality instruments. The name "Le Marquis de l'air" was first purchased by Albert and Claudot Charles, this violin is a mid 19th century instrument that was made around 1850 in Mirecourt on the predominant broadly shaped Stradivarius model. The top is made of beautiful medium grained spruce, the one piece back of moderately flamed maple. The varnish is of a luminous and intense dark golden-orange color, with slight patina and subtle antiqueings. Some traces of use indicate that this instrument has a rich musical biography and was often and intensively played. We offer this good violin which is besides a minor repair at the left soundhole upper pin crackfree and after a meticulous workover in our atelier in perfect playing condition. The powerful radiant sound is mature, strong and clear, well balanced with beautiful resonance, excellent projection.
