François-Louis Pique, Violin, Paris, 1802



A fine violin by François-Louis Pique (1758 – 1822)

Born in Roissy Ile de France, near Paris.  By 1787, Pique had moved to Paris and setup his workshop.  Nicolas Lupot worked with François-Louis in Paris in the 1790s, where the two collaborated on their styles of instruments.  He retired in 1818.

The back is one piece of quarter cut maple with a horizontal medium curl. The wood of the ribs and scroll matches that of the back. The top is a single piece of finely grained spruce, broadening to the bass side. The varnish is soft in texture, and red brown in color.

Label:            Pique rue de Grenelle
