French violin made by Laberte in Mirecourt. This old violin is a lovely old instrument that was built approx. 1940 in Mirecourt, the small but famous violin making village in the Vosges mountains. Moderately grained spruce that was used for the top and intensely colored orange-brown varnish determine the attractive appearance of this violin. The softly ascending arching of the top and the back is very well crafted. The scroll is a work of unmistakable French character, beautiful in appearance, and the overall style indicates that the violin was built in the renowned workshops of Laberte. We offer this French violin in good condition, immediately ready to play; it was thoroughly worked over by our luthiers. Its strong sound is dark, warm and full of character, brighter and singing in the upper ranges and with convincing power. 

SALE: French violin with minor optical blemishes in varnish and wood of the scroll.
