Ch. J.B. COLLIN-MEZIN 
1948 LUTHIER 30 extra 
GRAND PRIX - Exposition Universelle 1900 
PARIS No 47


A lovely warm violin with lots of character from a very sought after maker, these quality Collin-Mezin instruments are becoming increasingly difficult to find. In very fine condition without damage or repairs, just very minor varnish blemishes. Made from selected woods, set up with rosewood fittings (the pegs are original), Dominant strings and supplied in a new case, this example is based on the Guarneri model and it also has similarities to the Victorieux model that Collin-Mezin also made. The 30 extra indicates this to be one of their very best. The length of the one piece back is 14.1/16 inches (35.7 cm.). This is a violin with a fine rich tone, well balanced with a clear smooth treble and a sonorous base. A fine instrument for collector or player, highly recommended!
