Michele Deconet, Venice, 1760

 

Michele Deconet was born about 1712 near Strasbourg and was a well-traveled violinist before settling in Venice to a career as a prolific violin maker.

While Venetian predecessors such as Domenico Montagnana, Santo Serafin, and Pietro Guarneri influenced his work, his instruments are always recognizable for his particular style. This violin is a pure and typical example which retains it’s original label. The varnish has a strikingly deep orange-red color.
