1820s French Violin by Francois Breton, Mirecourt

1820s French Violin by Francois Breton, Mirecourt

A lovely example of Breton's work, this golden violin features an absolutely stunning one piece back with the signature Breton stamp still just visable on the button. This violin has a really beautiful, grand character and a sound to match.

It plays extremely well, with a rich, well rounded tone and at two hundred years old has settled extremely well. A piece of history and a joy to play for the intermediate to advanced player.


If you are interested in this instrument or another, please do get in contact with Jonathan via email or telephone. At this point we can arrange a no obligation testing session and see where we are. 

  • Additional Information

    It's important to me that each person who comes to me leaves with something they're absolutely happy with. With this in mind, I work within a six month returns policy. If you find the instrument isnt behaving as you would hope but is still in the same condition it was sold in, just get back in touch. We can discuss options and try to isolate the problem, but if this turns out to be impossible, a full refund will be given. 

    Shipping is available within the UK but unfortunately not worldwide (yet!)

    If we ship your violin it will be protected to the very best of our abilities.
