Price: 32000€

Joseph HEL violin bearing No. 155 and dated 1886. It is provided with a Certificate of Authenticity. Mentions "Gold Medal" and "Diploma of Honor" are written on the label.
Marked iron above the button and in the volute, handwritten inscription inside the violin. Upper table in one piece.
It presents some minor fractures very well restored and is "playable" in the state, although little played in recent years.

It seems obvious that this instrument was played a lot. I attribute this to its beautiful sound quality that has been remarked to me many times by many professional musicians and luthiers encountered in my career.
Clearly, this instrument is one of the finest examples of the luthier, both visually, but also in its timbre sound, ample, stable.
Certification: Certificate of authenticity of luthier Dominique Camard: Many brands on iron, Del Gesu model, handwritten text inside, Certificate of value of Luthier Georges Ambros: 35000€
