French violin "A. Torelli"

This French violin was built in the well-known violin making town of Mirecourt in the Vosges mountains and is an excellent example of the accurate craftsmanship in the renowned workshops of Laberte Humbert frères, a local enterprise that was founded in 1790. The violin bears the original "Lutherie artistique A. Torelli" label of Laberte and features a nice, precisely inlaid purfling and soft flutings that are the clear work of an experienced hand. Dark red colored varnish with antique patina and interesting traces of use covers quality tonewoods, deeply flamed sycamore maple of the two-piece back and regularly grained spruce of the table. This violin is preserved in best, crack-free condition and was worked over completely in our atelier. Our expert violin makers applied a fine new rosewood setup and recommend this instrument for its strong, mature and clear voice and for its immediate response.
