A very fine French violin by Alexandre Delanoy made around 1914. Alexandre Delanoy was a master luthier who worked for several years with J.B. Vuillaume in Paris and later established his own atelier in Bordeaux. He won a gold medal in the Bordeaux Exhibition. Alexandre's last name is sometimes spelt Delannoy which was the spelling of his ancestors. This lovely example of his work is without damage or repairs but with lots of varnish wear which gives a real feeling of age and character to this splendid violin! The back is one piece, length is 14.1/16 inches (35.6 cm.) Set up with rosewood and ebony fittings, Obligato strings and supplied in a new light weight case. This violin has a real classic sound with good projection and volume. A fine classical violin,Highly recommended!
