S324 “Stradivarius” copy, Czechoslovakia, early-mid-twentieth century$ 1,300.00
Even though this instrument was made in the amalgamated Czechoslovakia, some time after World War One, this ¾ violin is made in the French “Mirecourt” Stradivari style, with an even red-brown varnish and crisply carved edges. The maple back has an attractive, quilted flame. The tone is clear and sweet.
S374 3/4 violin, labelled “Stradivarius”, Germany, late nineteenth or early twentieth century$ 1,500.00

C382 Unlabelled, French, late nineteenth or early twentieth century$ 1,850.00
This ¾ violin, made in Mirecourt over a hundred years ago, combines an attractive varnishing style with a clear, characterful sound that is easy to produce.

C396 3/4 violin, unlabelled, European, late nineteenth or early twentieth century$ 1,885.00
This charming three-quarter violin was probably made in Mirecourt, the French violin-making town in the Vosges. Crisp edge work in the French “Stradivari” style and elegantly carved ‘f’ holes are complimented by a golden orange-brown varnish with a mix of natural and “antiqued” wear. The tone is sweet and clear, with a bell-like resonance, and the potential to help an imaginative player explore tone colours and shape phrases.

Ling Hua’s excellent understanding of violin making can be seen in both construction and wood selection. The varnish is an appealing golden brown colour. The violin is accompanied by a good case and a German “Gill” bow, and would suit a talented six to seven year old player.
