The J.T.L. ateliers in Mirecourt offered with the highly sought-after “Médio Fino” line solid-quality, simple instruments with very good musical properties. Correspondingly, many of the “Médio Finos” available today have intense traces of use, and examples such as this one, which is in perfect condition, are quite rare. This typical instrument was made late  around 1910 and is preserved in good condition; it was made following a broad model with drawn-on purfling and a resin pocket on top. This French violin is very visually appealing with its gently flamed one-piece back, the radiant orange-brown varnish and its features including pegs, tailpiece and chin rest of rosewood. The sound of this good violin is warm and sweet in the upper ranges, and our luthiers made it ready to play.
