This French violin was crafted approx. 1900 in the well-known workshops of Jérôme Thibouville-Lamy (J.T.L.) in Mirecourt; it is an instrument of the "Stradivarius" brand that features an interesting, nonstandard appearance. The violin, which is tonally recommended, has medium high archings and bears J.T.L.'s Stradivarius model label inside the body. The varnish shows some damage in the lower part of the table, and this violin is therefore offered with optical flaws on sale at a reduced price, but in perfect technical condition. This unique style is completed by the antique character of the red-brown colored varnish, that developed interesting patina and bears traces of use by former owners. The expressive scroll is another detail of the violin´s individuality. Our expert luthiers completely worked over this crackfree preserved instrument and made it ready to play with a new ebony setup. Now this J. T. L. violin features very comfortable playing properties and expresses its beautiful, strong and powerful sound, that is resonant and clear with some dark note.
