This very good and attractive violin is French, made by Mirecourt maker Remy around 1790. Labeled Remy fils on inner back. Here we can see typical example of good Mirecourt violinmaking school of pre factory era. Remy family violins were very much praised and demanded for a very good tone, easy responsiveness, good tone woods and good work , also for copying quite early Stradivari model - so being very loved by players. This violin is 2nd identical violin from same maker, (but 7th in total from Remy family makers) same time, same ornamented head in a form of "Chimera" I see, both are belonging to my colleague, baroque violinist and leader of period instruments group. She was happy to get 2 practically identical violins to avoid retuning from 415/430 to 440/466, but simply changing violin instead of long time needed for strings to adapt, even often you need better to change strings to another size.

Now she got in her possession one another very good and expensive violin, so need to sell one of those. Size of back is - 36.2 cm, which makes it as perfect instrument in right size to hold easily. The violin is set as baroque, having period fingerboard and tailpiece, setup is in very good state, quite new. It is in fully playable condition, probably fresh set of strings will even improve the sound of violin. There are some very old and stable repairs on table, ribs, head also was carefully restored (see photos), but nothing close to critical areas of soundpost and bass bar, as usual by Mirecourt 18th and early 19th c.

Instruments there are some old traces of worms. There are signs of wear of intensive playing to the varnish.

It was recently checked by our luthier, so there is no need to check by luthier again in a nearest future. The sound is sweet and dark, quite powerful, responsive and solistic through all registers with good amount of darkness for G string. Comes with new case and bow as bonus, if reasonable offer is made. Usually prices are double or triple higher by luthiers.
