Caussin violins?


Recommended Posts

Hello experts. I'm trying to find out more about Caussin violins but I'm finding very little information on the Web. I understand this was a French workshop that produced higher quality copy instruments. I also understand that some or many Caussins tended to be antiqued. I've got one (or so labeled)from Nicholas Caussin 1862 that is a copy of an English Duke fiddle -- even with the wax seal on the button. Can anybody point me to more info?

All help appreciated.

thx

Randy

I owned a violin for 40 years which was sold for me as a Caussin by Heinls (Toronto). They even brought it to Chicago for a second opinion. For many years we had believed it was a B.S.Fendt (english) until it was realized the timeline didn't match up. It was very well constructed and convincingly antiqued and labelled as a Rocca. It was a fine instrument but always a bit hard for me to play and I have obtained several more satisfying violins for considerably less money since. The realized price to the buyer was $23,000.00 4 years ago.
