Charles Enel, Paris, 1914

 

Charles Enel (1880-1954) was born into the world of luthiery, his mother being Louise Vigneron of the renowned bow making family. Enel’s early career took him through many highly-regarded workshops of 19th century France, including Gustave Bazin, Léon Mougenot, Auguste Deroux, and eventually the important firm of Silvestre & Maucotel.

Enel established his own workshop in Paris in 1911. He produced more than two hundred violins and thirty cellos which were finely made on classical Cremonese models with well figured wood and attractive varnish. This violin is an especially fine example in near mint condition and offers a robust, dark sound suitable for a professional player.
