I am looking for advice.
Is this a real Honore Derazy? The label seems correct. The violin exhibits similar characteristics to other archived photos of recent auctions of Derazy's. It is available at a local, reputable shop, but the price is about 30-70% less expensive than other recent Derazy auctions online. This instrument does not come with a certificate of origin/authenticity.
My son has trialled over 45 violins across 7 shops and 350 miles. This instrument he considers top 2 of all the instruments so far. He is an accomplished player, 4th in competition state-wide, first regionally, playing at an RCM level 9.
Advice from Luthiers or violin brokers would be appreciated.Tweet
