I am a violin collector and have for sale a gorgeous antique French violin from the workshop of Pierre Gautie (ca.1920), built to a Vuillaume model, and in stunning condition.

LOB of 358mm.

Pierre Gautie was a famous French violinmaker who succeeded to the workshop of Charles Simonin, who was himself JB Vuillaume’s favourite apprentice and ran one of the most prestigious workshops of his day. In this violin Gautie demonstrates all the best attributes of his illustrious predecessor; the quality of craftsmanship, high quality materials and wonderful varnish. The result is a violin that not only looks stunning but excels in sound quality. The flat arching heralds back to Stradivari and gives the violin superb projection. It has a luscious tone which is both dark and brilliant, and has a gorgeous bouquet of overtones. It is precise and responsive, and has a ring that is like a Tibetan singing bowel that cascades into the distance. French violins of near 100 years of age in this quality and condition are few. An inspirational violin for anyone to play.

Fitted with Evah Pirazzi strings and professionally set up. You will receive it ready to play.

French violins are currently a sweet spot in the market and have great investment potential.

This violin represents great value at only £4250
