Antique French 1/2 violin, J.T.L. Compagnon c.1880

This late 19th century French 1/2 violin is an exceptionally attractive instrument from the sought-after "Compagnon" series by the J.T.L. workshops in Mirecourt, France, where it was built approx. 1880. The warm sound features a noble, mellow character as it is typical for some French violins, and has some convincingly powerful, both warm and clear notes. This truly antique 1/2 violin is preserved in best condition possible, and presents itself as a work of flawless craftsmanship, with a small scroll, finely executed purfling that is inlaid close to the edges, and a most beautiful body with one-piece table and back. The original J.T.L.-Compagnon label proves the provenance of the instrument, that was designed after a successful Stradivari model. Our experienced luthiers worked over this charming 1/2 violin completely and made it ready to play. Have a look at our upgrade and trade guarantee for small-sized instruments
