Excellent French violin, Collin-Mézin (fils), 1936, No. 671

This high-quality French violin was built in 1936 in the Collin-Mézin atelier in Mirecourt. The instrument bears the original Ch. J. B. Collin-Mézin label which is dated and hand-numbered 671 in keeping with the Collin Mézin tradition. Charles Jean Baptiste Collin-Mézin (pere) was a luminary among French violin makers of the late 19th century. He was friends with many renowned soloists of the day, won numerous awards and founded an atelier which earned a good name for itself and was later run by his son Charles Louis keeping his name. The beautiful flamed two-piece back and very symmetrical top with interesting arch of this fine French violin are distinguished by a reddish-brown oil varnish that bears hardly any signs from playing. The violin is preserved undamaged, in remarkable condition and has been meticulously worked over and set up by the specialists in our atelier. Its strong, warm sound is dark and yet clear and has a wonderful resonance to it. We recommend it for soloists and demanding musicians.

A certificate of appraisal can be ordered with this Collin-Mezin violin.
