Very good and old French violin made c1800 by famous Mirecourt maker Jean-Baptiste Thouvenel (1788/1858) bearing authentic brand inside on back Thouvenel a Paris, (see photo). Violin is in very good condition for it's very old age, some old and very long time ago repaired cracks on table, also very old professionally patched sound postcrack on back, (see photos). Very good mature sound and projection, fully ready to play. Good response, easy to control, built for a player.If you quickly google, you'll find a few instruments on sale in different shops and usually they ask 5000 - 8000 Eur for instruments of that maker. It is nice size violin, right length of back - circa 35.7, not so oversized as usually French instruments are and therefore we can recommend it also for players with slightly smaller hands. We recently as usual tested it in a big Symphony Hall and we were not surprised to find it is quite able to fill that room. The sound itself is wonderful, very balanced and with very good projection. Usually prices are double or triple higher by luthiers.
