The company of Gand Frères was formed in Paris by the brothers Charles Adolphe (1812-1866) and Charles Nicolas Eugène Gand (1825-1892) in 1855. Charles Adolphe was trained by his father Charles François and was a fine maker of violins and bows who concentrated primarily on expertise and restoration. Charles Nicolas also trained with his father but also studied the violin at the Paris Conservatoire. On Charles François’ death in 1866, the business was merged with that of Gustave and Ernest Bernardel and was thereafter known as Gand & Bernardel Frères.
