Antique French violin - Laberte after J. B. Vuillaume

This good French violin labeled Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume was made in the Laberte workshops in Mirecourt around 1910, a copy of J.B. Vuillaume as indicated by the label. It has a striking outline, distinctive soundhole and a transparent yet luminous golden-orange varnish, all marked by the style of the most prominent figures in French violin making that was prevalent in the mid 19th century. Its unique character distinguishes this Mirecourt violin from many of its sisters which hail from his productive workshop. The musical appreciation this good violin has received can be seen by some traces of intensive use, especially on the back, which is crafted of wonderfully flamed maple. The violin was meticulously worked over by our luthier and is offered crackfree, ready to play. The aesthetic of this affordable French violin is as fascinating and enigmatic as its sound, powerful, rich in volume, mature and large, suitable for advanced players and beginners alike.
