SAYS MODEL OF 1922 EXCELLENT The mot valuable collection of vio-llna an. bows in the world is now in Pittaburifh. ' This collection, valued at more than $100,000.' is the property of Gabriel M. Francois, violin-maker, McCano block. Seventh avenue. Although iM. Francois had worked for more than 3i years in making the collection, it was brought to Us present supremacy only this year. The wax was indirectly responsible for the realization of M. Francois' ambition. He had been making vioiina in Pittsburgh for 20 years, with UUia hope that he would ever g together the wonder pieces of the violin maker's art that he Iongd for when the war came. When the war was over. M. Francois took a trip to Europe with all th money he could raise, for most of the eoveted instruments were in Europe. Before the war many of them had not been for sale at any price. Bui. now all of them were for sale and at prices far, far lower than the ones that had prevailed in ante-bellum days. Francois Cleans Up. Th-t reason was that the owners, like nearly everyone else in Europe, were "hard up." They were not only ready to dispose of the instruments that throuffh. the years they had guarded so carefully, but they were really anxious to dispose of them. Therefore, as the saying is. M. Francois went over and "cleaned up." He came back to Pittsburgh a few months ago with the collection, sym bolizing the materialization of his life's ambition. One of the violins la a Stradlvarlus, of the "best period." as the experts have it. valued at J20.000. Another is worth J12.000. There are several that would brftig more than Jo.OOO each. M. Francois' latest purchases were made last morrth when he went to New York and brought a Stradivarms and a GuadaKnini for a sum that was stated to be well up in five figures. The Instruments were brought to this country by Sigrnor Rodriguez Mahon, representative of the Spanish court. Modern Fiddles Good. The Stradivarius. dated 1717. was the property of the Spanish musician Sara-sat. On his death in 1912. the violin passed into the hands of the Spanish " . . . .
