Vannes 1999 (label, no. 2257)

“On connaît de lui une jolie viole de gambe (collection Blanchi, de Nice) fond plat, belle tête de Maure sculptée, vernis rouge foncé, marqueterie Renaissance, rosette ivoire et ébène.” (Vannes: Albert Blanchi 1871-1942, violin maker in Nice, successor to his father Augustin 1828-1899; “Il reproduisit aussi pour des collectionneurs quelques violes et pochettes anciennes.”) Date very clear on label reproduced by Vannes, but questionable in view of same maker's 1704 pardessus in Marseille's Musée Grobet-Labadié.
