Son and successor of Charles. Born at Mirecourt 1881. Started in twelfth year. working there 1929.
Magnificent reputation for bows. Perfectly made affairs, richly mounted (some ivory mounted instead of silver), Pernambuco sticks, often splendid imitations of the Tubbs. French virtuosi reciprocate the maker’s genius by widely advertising the products of their countryman. Stamped ‘Bazin’ - sometimes in two places. No better bows made by any contemporary maker.
