I have a 1908 Henri Farny & Cte violin, made in Paris, sold

Customer Question

I have a 1908 Henri Farny & Cte violin, made in Paris, sold in San Antonio, Texas to a member of a San Antonio Orchestra.
So far as I know, it remained with the original purchaser's family until I inherited from my father in 2000. In has a slightly damaged case, but the violin seems to be in very good condition, minus strings; bows are included and also appear to be in good shape.
