A finely made French violin, ca. 1860, made for the company Jerome Thibouville Lamy and stamped inside the belly:
A 2 piece belly of medium-grain book-matched pine, a single piece back of very attractive broadly flamed maple, the sides of similar wood and the neck and head of a lighter figure.
The instrument is original in all its major parts (bassbar, neck, blocks and liners) and is a well made example of mid-19th century French violin making. The varnish is of excellent quality, shaded and artificially aged, but well executed, with a transparent golden brown oil varnish in good order and largely un-retouched.
The model is after Stradivari and is executed finely and robustly with good attention to detail.
An excellent violin with powerful tone and good clarity and separation, ideal for an advanced student and for orchestral and ensemble playing.
