A Violin by Jean Baptiste Vuillaume

Paris, 1858

This nearly perfectly preserved example of this celebrated French maker, dealer, and innovator is modelled on the prized Guarneri del Gesu form. The provenance of this violin is exceptionally well documented with only four owners of record dating back to Vuillaume. This violin has been the property of a well-known concert violinist who has used this violin since the age of just 12. Without a single crack and with no polish to obscure the purity of the varnish, it is exceedingly rare to see any antique violin in this pristine condition. Not to be outdone, the sound is comparable to some of the greatest classic Italian violins, making this ideally suited for any player on the world stage, as well as collectors of the highest merit.

Length of back: 35.8
