1/2 size Artisto

Mid 20th Century Mirecourt violin, half size, labelled 'Artisto'. Beautiful instrument with red-gold varnish and a one-piece back of an attractive and unusual flame. It has a clear, strong voice with plenty of volume and growl. A really brilliant little fiddle, tremendously responsive, ready for an ethusiastic young player to enjoy.
Condition: Lots of dings and scratches, including a long one on the back. A minor repaired crack under the chin rest, but nothing of any significance.
Set up: New boxwood pegs, new Aubert bridge, Wittner tailpiece and Helicore strings.
Price, including a new case and bow - SOLD
