Fine French violin, model "Andreas Borelli"

Some of the popular violin copies crafted in the French town of Mirecourt included instruments of especially noteworthy quality with acoustic properties that are persuasive in their excellence. This fine French violin, which was made in approximately 1900 and features a “Andreas Borelli” model label, stands out with its quality of craftmanship and a large and brilliant sound, which is strong, resonant and has the utmost in clarity. Patterned after an elegant Italian model, this unmistakably French violin was well crafted by hand, probably in the workshop of Paul Mangenot, and its high standards can be seen by flawless craftmanship, its carefully chosen tone woods and its beautiful reddish-orange varnish. It is a perfectly preserved French violin that is ideal for demanding musicians; it has been fitted with new rosewood pegs, a new tailpiece and chinrest of fine rosewood by our luthiers and is ready to play.
