Antique French Jacobus Stainer model violin, Mirecourt

This antique French violin was crafted around 1930 in a Mirecourt atelier in the style of Jacobus Stainer, whose work greatly influenced generations of German violin makers. Although the Italian tradition founded by Stradivari ultimately had more impact, Jacobus Stainer instruments are prized today and have highly arched backs and tops as their most prominent feature. The characteristic arching toward the centre is especially well articulated in this instrument, which bears a French “Jacobus Stainer” model label within. Its top is made of moderately grained spruce. The dark red-brown varnish coating the gold-yellow surface of its two piece maple back gives this unmistakably French instrument a touch of class. The violin is in very good condition, with no cracks or repairs. Like all old stringed instruments from Corilon violins, our professional luthiers have thoroughly worked over the instrument and made it ready to play. We highly recommend this violin for its warm, clear, matured, rounded sound.
