Very good and old French violin made c1830 by famous Mirecourt maker. Branded inside Thouvenel a Paris, (see photo). Arnish probably not original, or retouched very long time ago, in very good condition for it's age, very old professional sound post patch on table almost invisible from outside. Very good sound and projection, ready to play.
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 35.9, not so oversized as usually French instruments are. We recently tested it in a big Symphony Hall and we were surprised to find it is quite able to fill that room. Wonderful, very balanced and with very good projection.Usually prices are double or triple higher by luthiers. For more fine violins or bows from collection - please ask for a info. Do not hesitate to ask more info/photos or suggest a better price. The item "Fine French violin by Jean Baptiste Thouvenel c1830, video" is in sale since Thursday, October 10, 2019.
