Mathieu backMathieu scrollMathieu topNicolas Mathieu

Circa 1780, a very interesting example of this French Master. This violin is currently being restored. It should be available in late 2014. Certificate by Bernard Millant.



These two violins by Nicolas Vuillaume were made for Jean Baptiste Vuillaume of Paris. They are branded on the back of the scroll Stentor 2. In our experience, the Stentor 2 model always plays far beyond other instruments in its price range. Because of this, they are rarely available. These two came from a private collection in France. Certificates by Bernard Millant.
