    This violin was made in Léon Mougenot’s workshop in 1946. Mougenot was born in 1874 in Mirecourt, France. He began his apprenticeship with Emile Laurent & later joined Georges Mougenot, his father’s cousin in Brussels between 1887 until 1894. Mougenot later worked for Paul Blanchard in Lyon between 1894 until 1896 then joined Paul Jombar in Paris from 1896 to 1898. Mougenot also worked with Hill in London before settling in Mirecourt & opening his own workshop in 1899. In 1909 he won a gold medal at the Nancy international exhibition. 

    This violin is labelled ‘Léon Mougenot Gauché, ex-ouvrier des Ies Maisons de Bruxelles, Lyon, Paris, Londres. 1946.’ The body measures 357mm along the back, 168mm across the upper bouts and 207mm across the lower bouts. The back is made from two pieces of well flamed maple & the top is made from spruce with a straight grain. This violin has a good cover of orange to light-brown coloured varnish & has been kept in excellent condition. 

    Overall this violin has a warm & well-rounded tone due to the high arching. The sound has a beautiful level of resonance, easy playability and a good level of complexity. This violin would be suitable for the advanced soloist, chamber musician or early tertiary level study. It is fitted with Thomastik Dominant strings to balance the overall sound across both the high & low registers.
