Robert, Alexandre Bassoon

There is 1 Alexandre Robert (b Chateau-Thierry 1853) bassoon in the Hichwa-Rachor database. He flourished in Paris from 1895 to p.1925. Even though Robert was known as a Boehm flute specialist, he also made oboes, clarinets, and bassoons. Before setting up his own workshop in 1895 as the successor to Claude Rive (a Boehm flute specialist), he worked for other firms such as Gautrot aîné, Evette & Schaeffer, and Thibouville-Cabart. Robert, in all probability, did not make many bassoons. Jansen reports that his bassoons were imitations of Buffet instruments and that there are no known bassoons.
