Fine French violin, Poirson school, approx. 1910 - dark, sweet, brilliant tone

This fine French violin of the Poirson school, which was made around 1900/1910, is an outstanding instrument with an exceptional and graceful aesthetic. An unknown maker left a distinctive mark by crafting a widely shaped model, widely flared corners with delicately inlaid purfling, small and refined sound holes and a most wonderful two piece back with a gently sloping flat arch. The extent of his artisanry can also be seen in his choice of tone woods, which are of the utmost quality, both in appearance and in their acoustic qualities. The rich, bordeaux-red varnish has developed a charming historic craquellation and patina that harmoniously complements the exquisitely and lovingly carved, mighty scroll. The sound of this violin is distinctively beautiful: dark, powerful and brilliant, yet also sweet and singing in the upper ranges, mature, balanced. It is an instrument that projects instandly and is offered crackfree in perfectly maintained condition, worked over and set up by the professional luthiers at Corilon, and is indubitably worthy of our warmest recommendation.
