Antique 19th century Mirecourt violin "Mansuy"

This antique French violin was handmade in the 1920's in the traditional luthier village Mirecourt in Lorraine, probably in the Laberte workshops. It bears a Mansuy trademark label. Beautiful tonewoods of best quality were used to build this instrument: The ribs are mildly flamed, the two piece maple back features especially beautiful gently flowing flames. The delicate purfling shows great attention to the detail. The transparent varnish shines in hazel reddish-brown tones, some signs from playing and marks are the only flaws. The violin is offered crackfree and after a meticulous workover by our luthiers in perfect playing condition ready to unfold her dak, clear, mature, typically "French" tone.
