About This Item

A gorgeous example of this great master’s work, this cello has a very well balanced and intimate sound with fine resonance, clarity and response. Two piece quarter sawn maple back of defined medium width flame, descending slightly from the center Joint. Spruce top of medium width grain. The varnish is amber brown over a golden ground.

Charles Jean-Baptiste Collin-Mezin
Born in Mirecourt in 1841, Charles Jean-Baptiste Collin-Mezin, first studied violin making with his father, and later with the great Vuillaume, in Brussels. Opening his shop in Paris in 1867, Collin-Mezin was a sought after restorer, but remained focused on making new instruments. Dedicated to the patterns of Stradivari, Amati and Guarneri, his work is careful and clean, with penetrating tonal qualities. His fame was further enhanced in violin competitions and adjudications, winning many top awards and medals in the most prestigious competitions.
