Violin Labeled J. F. LeCyr

Violin Labeled J. F. LeCyr

At first glance, the label may lead one to think this violin is by J. F. LeCyr.  It reads:  J. F. LeCyr, Los Angeles Cal., 1921.  Although he did make violins, LeCyr also restored many.  At the bottom of this label, the word “reconstructed” is hand written.  We believe that this is likely a German-made violin that he restored.  The beautiful carving on the back and sides of the scroll is similar to what we have seen on some German violins.
