Pailliot, approx. 1820: Antique French violin

This beautiful antqiue French violin by the brothers Pailliot is an unmistakable early 19th century quality instrument from Mirecourt, that was built around 1820. The signature inside indicates a work by "Pailliot". This violin is preserved crackfree and features an outstanding sound that is worthy of its claimed provenance, with a clear, radiant, bright and sweet voice that is balanced throughout all of the violin's registers, with assertiveness and a broad scope. Its very transparent, orange brown varnish with an older lustre and patina gives this premium instrument its elegant aesthetic, which is complemented by an expressive, individually styled scroll - which is probably a later work. We offer this interesting French Pailliot violin in best condition, ready to play and worked over by our experienced luthier.
