A fine quality violin from a good established maker. Léon Mougenot also known as Leon Mougenot Gauché worked for Blanchard at Lyons, Paul Jombar in Paris and Hill and sons London before establishing his own workshops at Mirecourt in 1899. All his instruments were entirely hand made, whether by assistants or himself. This example made in 1940 has a beautiful one piece back 358 mm. in length, condition is extremely good, just the smallest of blemishes. Set up with Dominant strings and supplied in a new lightweight case. A violin with a vibrant open tone, capable of much expression, a good instrument that is a pleasure to play. Highly recommended!
