A French Violin from the Caussin Workshop, 1880
A French violin made in Neufchâteau, France in the workshop of the esteemed Nicolas Caussin, circa 1880; a one-piece spruce table of medium to wide grain, with a two-piece slab cut maple back of plain figuration, antiqued in the hallmark style that makes Caussin fabrications so easily recognizable and well loved: a dramatically shaded varnish of opaque brown upon a more golden butterscotch, with intentional craquelure and patina in great abundance, finished with a traditionally scribed purfling.
Freshly fitted Jujube pegs with boxwood pips and collars, with a matching chinrest, end-button and tailpiece, a French Despiau Superieur bridge, highest quality spruce soundpost, titanium tailgut, and Vision strings.
A great opportunity to own a beautifully voiced, highly aesthetic 19th century French instrument at a good price. Inquire today.
