i am currently using a violin with the following label:

henri farny & cie
Paris, France

I am unable to find any information on this instrument - does anyone know anything at all about this shop? manufacturer? brand? i am borrowing it from a relative and am very curious. Thanks!

Some (maybe all) were "trade" instruments produced for import by U.S. shops. I think the old Wurlitzer shop in NYC was one. Not sure if there really was an Henri Farney.
