This antique and recommendable French viola, length of back is 38.0 cm, was made in approximately 1870 in Mirecourt. The top is made of attractive medium grained spruce, the one piece back is made of flamed maple. The luminous orange-brown varnish is in excellent condition with hardly any signs from playing. This recommendable antique viola is very well preserved, undamaged and - like all old stringed instruments from Corilon violins - after having been worked over by the luthiers in our atelier offered in best playing condition. The sound is notably strong, a very typical French sound, clear, matured, noble and of good strength.
