424 M Couturieux

Early 20th Century French violin labelled Lutherie Artistique M Couturieux. Beautiful wood and craftsmanship. Two-piece back, highly flamed. A high-end Mirecourt workshop violin. The sound is bright and clear, with a pleasing individuality. Very even across  the strings.
Condition: There is a recent scratch in the varnish on the back. Other than that it might have just been lifted from the maker's bench. It looks as though it has hardly ever been played - a lovely instrument.
Set up with new bridge, Helicore strings and rosewood chinrest. It has the original rosewood pegs.
Price:  including new case and bow.
