Maker: Marcel Lapierre
Description: (1907 – 1979) Bowmaker Marcel Lapierre cast his net widely among the many Mirecourt workshops active in the twentieth century. He trained with Jérôme Thibouville-Lamy from 1921 to 1923 and began working for François Lotte in 1931. After five years, he moved to the workshop of Charles Louis Bazin and later worked for Morizot frères. In 1946 Émile Auguste Ouchard hired him to rough out some sticks, and following Ouchard's departure for New York in that same year, Lapierre moved to Geneva to begin working for Vidoudez. After only one year he returned to Mirecourt and set up his own shop, where he worked through the 1970s.
This bow is an excellent example of this fine maker’s work. Ebony and gold mounted in excellent condition. Weight: 72.5 grams.
