Summary

A MAKER WHOSE WORKS ARE RARE.

Biography

Career
We know very few about this maker who, after his label, was a pupil of J.B. VUILLAUME.
We don't find any mention of his name in the reference book about Vuillaume by Roger MILLANT, but in René Vannes' dictionary we find a short biography, stating that he was pupil and collaborator of J.B. VUILLAUME.

Works
His works are rare, and we have been able to see one violin only by this maker, dated 1911.
Based on Guarneri model, this is less a copy than a free interpretation of the model, with an attractive antiqued varnish and accurate workmanship.

Workshop
Rue d'Havré. Mons.
