With a body length of 31.1 cm, this antique quality French small-sized violin belongs to the rare children's violins in an intermediate size between 1/2 and 1/4, which many small players particularly appreciate for their handiness and tonal advantages. With its orange-brown, very transparent and luminous varnish as well as the characteristic scroll, it is recognizable as a typical French children's violin from the violin making town of Mirecourt and was probably made around 1900 in the workshops of the renowned company Jérôme Thibouville-Lamy (J.T.L.). The attractive, mild flaming of the one-piece maple back determines the character of this small 1/2 violin (or large 1/4 violin), which is rounded off by expressive playing marks and small repairs on the top; they show that the instrument, built after a proven Stradivari model, was played by good young musicians who were confident even in high registers. After a complete workover in our specialized workshop, we offer this interesting French children's violin immediately ready to play, recommending its powerful sound, warm, strong, deep and resonant.
