A good French violin from the Jerome Thibouville-Lamy workshop in Mirecourt, circa 1950, bearing the labels “d’ après / Nicolaus Amatius Cremoniea Heroni - / mi Filius Antoni Nepos fecit 1676 / (JTL logo) / trade mark / deposee” and “d/après N. Amati / J. Thibouville-Lamy / Made in France". The bridge is stamped “C. Bayon a Rennes”. The back is of two pieces of Vosges maple of medium figure, the table of narrow grained spruce, widening slightly to the edges. The varnish is of a red-orange color on a golden base. Back length is 359 mm. Weight, without chin-rest, is 458 grams. One of the last of the JTL violins from Mirecourt, this instrument has come to us in pristine original condition.
