Sold with a West Country Violins certificate.

A fine quality violin made by Gustave Villaumein the style of Guarneri, labelled and stamped below the button with the makers name. In beautiful condition without damage or repairs, just wear to the varnish which gives this lovely violin lots of character. A hand crafted violin with good attention to details, a fine carved scroll, symmetrical button and graceful F holes. The back length is 14.1/16 inches, (357mm), With the original gold capped rosewood pegs and ebony chinrest and tailpiece. Set up with Dominant strings and supplied in a new lightweight case. I would describe this as a violin with a refined "golden" tone, it has a good deal of warmth but also a clear treble and plenty of volume. A good purchase for both collectors and players, violins of this quality are rising in price rapidly. Highly recommended!
