French Violin, Grand Prix Paris 1931

This French violin was likely built around 1920 by an unknown maker, possibly in Mirecourt The fact that even for instruments without origin information from the well-known French violin-making town, high quality standards were nevertheless upheld, is evidenced by this French violin. It exhibits both fine visual appearance and excellent musical characteristics.

There are two labels glued inside the instrument:

Januarius Gagliano filius
Alexandri fecit Neap 1770

With a handwritten note ‘Copie d’après,’ the violin maker intended to document the model’s inspiration from this master.

Second label:
Grand Prix Paris 1931
This is how the instruments and art objects presented at this Paris Colonial Exhibition were marked.

The violin falls in size between a 4/4 and a 7/8 This guarantees relaxed playing. But the tone is full and strong. The finely flamed maple is clearly visible through the transparent red-brown varnish. The instrument is in very good condition with refurbished playability

Played by Mr. Christoph Henschel.
