A superb violin by Albert Claudot made in 1924 and numbered 73. The name Claudot was synonomous with violin making, they were a large family all working in Mirecourt from 1750 to around 1937. One member even moved to Glasgow! Albert was one of the best, he studied under his uncle at Dijon in 1920 and then set up his own atelier. This example of his work is in beautiful condition apart from some blemishes to the varnish on the front. The back measurement is:14.1/16 inches (35.7 cm.) Set up with Obligato strings top quality ebony fittings and supplied in a new case. It is a delight to play, it has a sonorous balanced tone with good clarity to the treble and plenty of volume. A robust violin, fine workmanship and a pleasure to play!
