A Pristine French Violin By Louis Moitessier, First Quarter 19th Century.

A pristine example of Parisian trained Mirecourt Master, Louis Moitessier (1761-1840) of desirable proportions and representing the peak of his craft; branded “Moitessier a Paris” to the inside of the back by the maker. Many French violins from this era and region demonstrate somewhat larger proportions - this personal model by Moitessier boasts a reasonable back length of 360mm and presents as a highly characteristic example of Moitessier’s more refined work, a desirable piece that befits both collector and performer alike.
