This powerful antique 19th century French Le Marquis de l'air violin by Charles Claudot has an outstanding tone in the price range. It is one of the works that Claudot Charles stamped "Le Marquis de lair doiseaux" on the back, this name should later be purchased by the J.T.L. and Laberte manufactories well for the use as a trademark on their cheaper quality instruments. The name "Le Marquis de l'air" was first purchased by Albert and Claudot Charles, this violin is a mid 19th century instrument that was made around 1850 in Mirecourt on the predominant broadly shaped Stradivarius model. The top is made of beautiful medium grained spruce, the one piece back of moderately flamed maple. The strongly patinated varnish is of a luminous and intense dark golden-orange color. Some traces of use indicate that this instrument has a rich musical biography and was often and intensively played. We offer this good violin with some accetable repairs at a reduced price, ready to play after a meticulous workover in our atelier in perfect playing condition. The powerful radiant sound is mature, strong and clear, well balanced with beautiful resonance, excellent projection.
