A beautiful instrument by Emile Mennesson which was sold by Maurice Mermillot sometime in the 1880s, the violin carries the Mermillot label but was made by Emile Mennesson. He was a very acomplished maker and won many gold medals and diplomas for his faultless workmanship. The length of the one piece back is: 14.1/8 inches (35.8 cm.). The condition of this instrument is excellent, just a few minor varnish blemishes and wear. Set up with quality rosewood fittings, Evah Pirazzi strings, and the violin is supplied in a new case. This instrument has that smooth creamy rich tone that is typical of the early Mennessonviolins. A fine instrument, they are very collectable and becoming quite rare!
