French violin, Maison Gustave Faes, Anvers

This interesting antique violin was built approx. 1920 by an uknown violin maker, on behalf of the editor and shop Gustave Faes in Anvers, a renowned company that was founded in 1876. This French violin is one of the very few examples of stringed instruments from the Maison Faes, that specialized in editing and in manufacturing keyboard instruments. Nevertheless, the label „fait specialement pour Monsieur Faes a Anvers“ demonstrates the high quality demands this violins was designed to meet, with fine visual aesthetics and excellent musical properties. The intensively shining, highly transparent dark-orange varnish with light patina decorates the instrument, that was built after an elegant model with beautiful edgework full of individuality. Aside from a small repair at the ribs near the chinrest this interesting violin is undamaged and in best playing condition, after a complete work-over by our violin maker. It features a well-defined, noble sound with a very easy response. The value violin is certified by the Mittendwald luthier Anton Sprenger who valued the violin for € 3,500 (valuation included in the price).
