Jacques-Pierre Thibout Violin, Paris 1825

Jacques-Pierre Thibout Violin, Paris 1825

Jacques-Pierre Thibout is perhaps the most artistic of the Parisian makers. He was a contemporary of Nicholas Lupot, and if he had made faithful Strad copies rather than pursuing his own model he would probably be the better known maker. Here we have a beautiful example in immaculate condition – definitely the finest Thibout I have seen and the best sounding too.

Jean-François Aldric Violin, Paris 1835

Jean-François Aldric is one of the great names in French making, of the same generation as Lupot and Pique.

Joseph Calot Violin, Paris circa 1815

Joseph Calot Violin, Paris circa 1815

Joseph Calot is a fascinating figure in the history of violin-making. He is best known as a Turin maker for his association/collaboration with Pressenda, but he was also an apprentice in the workshop of Nicholas Lupot, and our violin is a bold variation on Lupot’s Paris style. This is a perfectly preserved example of Calot’s Parisian work, showing exceptional ability.
