This fine French violin by Andre Coinus was made in 1927 in Mirecourt, the violin is originally labeled and signed - it is a strong and expressive sounding instrument of unmistakably Mirecourt style. The influence of the regional tradition can be seen in the broad but elegant Mirecourt model, the well-proportioned scroll and in the fact that the elegantly cut sound holes are widely spaced, positioned close to the delicate, elegantly applied purfling.

The moderately-grained spruce used for the top creates interesting, individual accents in this Andre Coinus violin's attractive appearance.
