Details

There was actually an Italian maker called Andrea Verini around the time this violin was made, but this violin is unmistakably French and so the trade name on the label is undoubtedly coincidental.

The violin, on a Brescian model with typical f holes and the double purfling associated with this early Italian school, uses beautiful tone woods and very fine workmanship.

The tone is unusually dark and warm in the lower register, clear and resonant in higher positions. It is rich in overtones and produces an interesting colourful sound. An ideal chamber instrument for a mature player.
