J.B. CH Collin-Mezin Violin, 1893, Paris

An excellent example from the master's most fruitful period, this violin offers a balanced tonal approach that is suitable for both solo and chamber work. Brilliant and soaring sound, typical of Collin-Mezin, with a pure, clear and singing tone.

The back is of two pieces of maple, with a wide grain, emanating downwards from the seam. Top is of clear straight grained spruce. Varnish is of light to medium brown-amber.

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.
