Interesting French violin with original stamp probably made by Jean-Mathurin Remy himself, around the year 1820. With its radiant, strong, charming voice and its elegant historic aesthetic, this fine violin is a stylish and typical example of the instruments which helped the name Remy establish such a solid reputation in the late 18th and 19th centuries. The medium-grained spruce of the top and beautifully flamed maple of the one-piece back are tone woods of the finest acoustic quality and appearance. A transparent and darkened orange-brown varnish gives sophisticated nuance to the perfectly crafted beesting corners and sound holes; the varnish is further enhanced by beautiful anqtiue patina which developed over the course of some 200 years. In keeping with its advance age, this French Remy violin has been kept in premium condition. The specialists at our atelier completely set up the instrument and made it ready to play; its excellent condition. We warmly recommend this antique French violin in part because of its warm and radiant sound, which is darker in the lower registers and has a bright singing voice in higher notes.
