Birth : 1900 in Brussels (Belgium)


Natural son and pupil of E. LAURENT, Georges DEFAT served his apprenticeship with Paul MANGENOT before coming to Paris in 1920 to work with MAUCOTEL.
He established his workshop in 1926 on Rue Biot in Paris.

DEFAT’s instruments are made both on a personal pattern and after the great Italian masters.

Labels and Stamps
DEFAT’s instruments generally bear both his label and a stamp on the lowest rib, just over the button.
