Outstanding antique French violin, approx. 1880, large, warm tone

This especially beautiful late 19th century French violin has an outstanding tone in the price range. It is a high quality work that was made around 1880 presumably in Mirecourt on a slim and elegant French model. The top is made of beautiful medium grained spruce, the two piece back of moderately flamed maple. The varnish is of a luminous and intense dark orange color, with slight patina and some minor retouches. Many 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 f-wing repair crackfree after a meticulous workover in our atelier for violin making and restoration in best playing condition and tonally optimized. The powerful warm, large sound is strong and warm, clear, with some mature sweetness, rounded, well balanced with beautiful resonance, excellent projection.
