French master violin No. 34 by Paul Hilaire, 1950

This French master violin No. 34 by Paul Hilaire shows traces of use that are fitting for a well-played instrument of its quality and age - it was made in 1950 in Mirecourt, origin of many French violins and is an eye-catchingly beautiful instrument that bears Paul Hilaire's signed and dated original label. The delicately carved scroll is a good indication of the meticulous artisanry and craftsmanship with which this fine quality instrument was made. The exquisitely lovely and lustrous, bright golden-brown oil varnish on a brightly luminous background enhance the premium tone woods, especially the deeply flamed maple back. The bright, radiant sound of this Paul Hilaire violin is as striking as its optical appearance. Our experienced luthiers meticulously worked over the undamaged violin and made it ready to play.
