Description: This violin has a dark, woody and rich tone. It is powerful enough for orchestral work and is a beautiful blend for chamber and quartet ensembles.
Violin maker, (1828 – 1900). Son of Charles Jacquot and nephew of J.B. Vuillaume, Pierre Charles Jacquot was a leading French maker of the 19th century, receiving many prizes in international competitions as well as the Legion d'honneur in 1892. His fine work is based on Stradivari and Guarneri models.
He worked in Nancy and was later joined by his sons, Etienne and Jules, changing his business name to 'Ch. Jacquot et Fils’.
This stunning work by Pierre C. Jacquot is representative of his early days in Nancy, France. The violin is after a Stradivari pattern with a gorgeous one-piece “pillow” flamed, maple back.
