Emil Mennesson 1881 Violin

Item Number: #
Born in 1842 in Reims, Emil Mennesson also used the professional name "Joseph Guarini" and many of his violins are labeled as such. Although he came from a family of music merchants and piano makers, he was particularly interested in the violin family and founded a violin shop under the "St. Cecilia" insignia. His workshop followed the traditional French model that was established by J.B. Vuillaume and produced many levels of instruments, from high-end professional to student instruments.

Violin Information: Made in 1881 by a good maker from Emil Mennesson's workshop. It offers a clear, refined tone that is beautifully balanced. The top is of fine grain spruce, widening towards the edges. One piece maple back with narrow flame, descending slightly from left to right. Scroll and ribs of a more prominent flame. Finished in a spirit varnish of an orange-brown on a golden ground. Labeled with Mennesson's trade name, Joseph Guarini. LOB 358 mm.
