While large three-quarter or small full-size violins abound, it is rare to come across a genuine seven-eighths violin. These instruments were made as “ladies’ violins” for people of smaller adult build or with smaller hands. This example, with a back length of 347.5mm, or just under 13 ¾ inches, has a red-brown varnish and crisp edges very much in the style of the French Mirecourt workshops, but is probably made in Germany: the original label, now lost, would probably have used the term “Französische”. The tone is clear and even, and speaks easily.
