A French Violin from the Caussin Workshop, Late 19th Century.

A French violin made in Neufchâteau, France in the workshop of the esteemed Nicolas Caussin, circa 1870-1880; a two-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 their traditionally scribed purfling and an apocryphal label attributing its construction to Gobetti.
