A fine antique 18th century french violin made circa 1780 labelled Panormo. Fine antique french violin made circa 1780 labelled Panormo. The top is made of two pieces of spruce, and shows regular grain lines widening towards the edges.
The back is made of two pieces of flamed maple, the curl descending from the center joint. The ribs and head are of the same wood. The head, an exquisite example of the 18th century french school, has been beautifully grafted on a new neck. The violin is covered with a fine brown varnish on a golden ground. The violin is in a strongly restored and immediate playing condition, with many repairs on the top and ribs, including a soundpost patch, and the button of the neck has been changed a long time ago (a very nice french 20th century work).
The head shows pegs bushings. The instrument has been entirely revised and set-up, including a new Despiau bridge, a new tailpiece, a new chinrest, a new endpin and a new set of Thomastik Dominant strings.
The pegs are older but still fit perfectly. The violin shows on the inside back an apocryphal label of "Vincenzo Panormo fecit London 1735". The violin is not a Panormo work. An illustrated certificate can be proposed after the sale for a little supplement.
The instrument comes with a new rectangular case of quality. The violin has a beautiful sweet deep and warm sound, with a good power and projection, and some baroque accents : a fantastic 18th century french violin with a golden sound you will love.
