A superb fine quality violin by Charles Résuche. He was born at Mirecourt, 1858, He became a pupil of Didion, and then worked with Gand and Bernardel in Paris. In 1890 he set up his own atelier with Justin Diter, a fine maker in his own right. Violins by Charles Résuche & Justin Diter always have a grandeur and grace about them. This fine example is in beautiful condition. The length of the two piece back is: 14.1/16 inches (357mm). Set up with ebony fittings, Obligato strings, and supplied in a new oblong case. The condition is excellent, just very minor varnish craquelling and some small dings as you would expect from a violin 122 years old!. With a rich smooth tone, a lovely sonorous bass and sweet treble, a real classy sound. One of our best instruments, really superb!
