These instruments have become quite difficult to find over the last few years. They were produced by one of the Mirecourt workshops as copies of instruments by a much earlier maker, also by the J.Thibouville-Lamy workshops of which this is an example. The condition is good with just minor varnish imperfections. The violin has the Marquis de Lair brand below the button on the back and also carries a J.Thibouville-Lamy label. Note the typical "antiquing" around the F holes which is a feature of this model. The back length is 14.1/16 inches (35.7 cm.). Set up with Pro-Arte strings and supplied in a new light weight case. A violin with a surprisingly responsive and sweet tone. An unusual instrument that plays extremely well
