Excellent copies of Stradivari in the French style, strongly influenced by Lupot. Large model which retains Mirecourtian characteristics in the arching and wide-set upright soundholes. Striking ebony or whalebone purfling and thick red varnish. Seems to have often used old wood affected with worm, which is neatly patched under the varnish. Superbly finished workmanship.
