1/2 - Rare French master 1/2 violin, approx. 1820

This French 1/2 master violin is an extremely rare instrument, that was built approx. in the year 1820, presumably in the famous violin making town of Mirecourt. A corresponding label indicates that the violin is one of the sought-after instruments that were built after patterns of Antonius Stradivari; nevertheless, only very few violins especially of this size meet comparable master-standards. The delicately crafted scroll, the small soundholes and the amazing, deeply flamed ribs are full of character. In exceptionally well-preserved condition this violin reveals its age only through very few traces of use and the delicate patina, that determines its noble, antique appearance. The original fingerboard is somewhat shorter in length, similar to the standard of baroque violins. We warmly recommend the light sound of this special children‘s violin, that is full of character, with a soft note. It was carefully worked over by our luthier and is immediately ready to play!
