About This Item

A powerful and brilliant violin with fine projection and balanced tonal colors, made by famous Parisian violinmaker Leon Bernardel at the turn of the last century. The back is of one piece of maple, with medium width flame descending from the bass to treble side. The top is of medium grained spruce. Varnish is deep red over a golden ground.

Born in Paris in 1853, Leon Bernardel studied with his father, Ernest August Bernardel, with violinmaking lineage tracing to Nicolas Lupot. He then trained with Justin Derazey. Joining the firm Gand et Bernardel Frères, Leon finally opened his own establishment in 1899. His company became the primary supplier to the finest orchestras and music conservatories in France. He later joined the firm of Cousenon and Co., as artistic director, further enhancing his reputation, before retiring in 1923.
