By Cecie Stainer

Was a Frenchman who worked in Amsterdam about 1735-70- He followed the Amati pattern, using good yellow varnish ; it is supposed that he gained experience in Italy before going to Amsterdam, as his work is superior in merit to that made in France at that date. In a violoncello of small size, with yellow varnish and of carefully finished work, is the label: "J. B. Le Febvre fecit in Amsterdam, 1770."
