Large French violin. "Nicolas Bertholini" by Laberte, Mirecourt

This large and strikingly beautiful French violin of Mirecourt was made in Mirecourt in the early 20th century around 1920 in the renowned Laberte-Magniéworkshops. With a bodylength of 36.8 cm this violin is especially suitable for tall, large-handed and male players. Well-executed work was patterned after a violin model by Didier Nicolas and is rich in attractive details: fine double purfling, 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 one-piece maple back. The scroll is clearly a Mirecourt worker's hand. This good French Laberte violin is well preserved, undamaged and attractive instrument that produces a very large and voluminous, mature sound that is powerful and rich in overtones. According to the owner, a German "Jugend Musiziert" contest has been won with this violin.
