Violin attributed to Claud Pirot

A truely stunning French violin of around 1820. Having a single piece back with a beautiful oil varnish. Having seen two examples of Claud Pirot sell at auction for around £18,000 plus 20% buyers premium I have no hesitation in offering this violins at £12,000. The only downside is the many repaired cracks to the table which may have effected its overall power, but it still retains its superb quality and tonal variations. A beautiful violin and one I'll be sad to sell.
