Handsome 1920's French violin, Mirecourt, probably Laberte

This elegant and strikingly beautiful French violin of Mirecourt was made in Mirecourt in the early 20th century around 1920, most likely in the renowned Laberte-Magnié workshops. This well-executed work was patterned after a model by Nicolas Lupot and is rich in attractive details: the beautiful grain of the lovely tonewoods shimmers through the transparent red-brown varnish, which bears numerous meaningful traces from playing and particularly accentuates the spectacular, highly flamed two-piece maple back. The blackened scroll is clearly a Mirecourt worker's hand. This good French is despite its varnish flaws which are considered in the price a well preserved, undamaged and attractive instrument that produces a typically French clear and mature sound that is powerful and rich in overtones.
