Details

A very fine certified French violin made by Jean Joseph Honore Derazey ca.1830, branded to the back with the makers brand "H.Derazey".
Honore Derazey was one of the most important of the French violin making.
He started working in Mirecourt, later went in Paris where he worked with different workshops for several years.
He also worked for J.B. Vuillaume and was honored medals at several Exhibitions in France and England.
This is a very beautiful example of the maker's work in a very good condition.
The varnish is beautifully rich coated with a luminously of transparent and radiant yellow - brown oil varnish with subtle patina.
This outstanding Derazey violin has a stunning appearance and a big resonant mature sound.
The violin comes with a certificate, made by a professional French violin expert.

DERAZEY, Honoré (Jean-Joseph) Born 1794 Darney, died 1883 Mirecourt France. Apprenticed in Mirecourt, then employed in Paris at various ateliers. Established his own business in Mirecourt which was quickly very successful. Awards gained in Paris 1839, 1849 and 1855, and London 1851. Very prolific maker, especially after c.1844, following Stradivari and (rarely) Amati models. Many sold through J. B. Vuillaume who inserted his own label. Made several instruments passed off as the work of Gaspar Duiffoprugcar in the wake of misguided attempts to show that this maker, and not Andrea Amati, was the originator of the violin in Lyons in the early 16th century. Very fine professional work in the - from John Dilworth


Bevor er sich in Mirecourt als Fabrikant selbstständig machte, arbeitete er einige Jahre in Paris bei verschiedenen Meistern. Seine Geigen, gewöhnlich nach Stradivari, seltener nach Amati gemacht, sind aus gutem Holz und tragen eine Brandmarke mit seinem Namen, die freilich oft nur nach Öffnung der Geige zu finden ist.
from Willibald Leo Lütgendorff
