(3) Le Gai Violoniste number 160

A SMALL SERIES ABOUT…….

Is it a catalog image or a box label ? Note these images, as you can see there are clear differences between a box label and an image from a catalog.

Original box label from 1897
Catalog page from the Victor Bonnet &Cie catalog arount 1927 And is this specific image also used as a box label? Maybe, but I don’t know, I haven’t come across an original box with this label yet.

Last time I took the L’Ours Martin and the Le Pochard as an example, now you see the Le Gai Violoniste as an example of the differences between box label and the catalog image. In the old Martin catalogs the differences are often minimal but in the later Victor Bonnet & Cie catalog the differences are many more larger as this example shows.
