We are especially pleased to be able to offer these two superb examples of the work of Emile Germain. Born in 1853, Emile trained first in Mirecourt (as did almost all Parisian makers) and then with his father in Paris. He took over his business in 1870 and continues on until 1933. He won a medal at the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1900. These two wonderful violins are in unusually fine condition made from the very finest materials.
