Birth : 1856 in Paris (Ile-de-France) Death : 1941 in Paris (Ile-de-France)


According to René Vannes,  Georges CUNAULT began his apprenticeship at the age of 17 under Sebastien VUILLAUME.
In 1873 CUNAULT joined Claude-Augustin MIREMONT, a former collaborator of BERNARDEL Père, with whom he remained until 1880.
From 1880 to 1882, Georges CUNAULT worked for various Parisian firms before establishing himself at 53, Faubourg Poissonière.

Georges CUNAULT's production is composed mainly of violins and cellos.
Some rare violas can also be found.

1882 to 1884 : 53, Faubourg Poissonière. Paris
1884 to 1889 : 29 rue des Martyrs. Paris
1889 to 1893 : 6, rue Clauzet. Paris.
1893 : 31, rue Navarin and
and later 19 rue Navarin, Paris, France.

After René VANNES,  Georges CUNAULT retired in Villemomble (Seine-Saint-Denis) circa 1920, where he continued to produce violins, violas and cellos.
Nevertheless, one can find instruments signed in Villemomble before that date.

Label and Stamps:
Labels bear usually a signature by ink on the high right side.
Until now we have been able to see two different stamps
- G CUNAULT A PARIS (on the high and low part of the inside back)
- G CUNAULT (located just over the label and to the inside neck block)
