2010. A viola made by Atelier Meteny, A European, hand made instrument made under strict control and designed by the talented Pascal Gilles (V.S.A. prize winner for tone). Very attractive and good sounding instrument. 15 5/8''
A very interesting violin from the begining of the 19th century and probably from Parma. Poplar back, maple ribs and neck, spruce front. This instrument has been reduced in size. Very interesting tone, deceptively powerful, nutty sound. Many old restorations, but is presented in a healthy state. THis instrument was restored in the Hill workshop who had previously certified it as Felix Mori Costa.
By Franocis Jude Gaulard. circa 1830. Strong Octagonal stick of good pernambuco. Ivory fittings. A rare and very good example in good condition. suitable for player or collector.
A fine bow in good condition. made by Auguste Barbe for Gand and Bernadel around 1890. Good strong stick with excellent control and tone. Millant certificate.
