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.
