Colin Mezin pere violin – father of the dynasty (born 1841 died 1923)

Charles Jean-Baptiste Collin-Mezin (Père) (1841-1923) was a celebrated Parisian violin maker. He was awarded medals in the Paris Exhibitions of 1878, 1889 and 1900 and was elected an Officier de l'Académie des Beaux-Arts. His best work is generally from the years 1880 to 1900. We appreciate his late 19th Century instruments for their handsome materials and varnish, precise workmanship, and their full, brilliant sound quality.

My violin is a prime example of a rare 7/8 model made by Colin Mezin pere and was made and signed by him in 1922, on the inside lower bout, one year before his death.

The violin is in excellent condition - appraised by Peter Seman Violins at
$16,500.00 - and my asking price is $8,000.00

Wait a moment and there is an example of me playing it on You Tube:

Photos don't come up, but utube performance sounds like a nice fiddle.

Fortunately for me, I sold the Colin-Mezin vioolin about 2 months ago.
