Marcel Lapierre viola bow

Catalog ID: A-VAB/4329

A French viola bow made, in our opinion, by Marcel Lapierre in Mirecourt circa 1960. Mounted with ebony and silver fittings and branded JEAN FRITSCH À PARIS.

French bow maker Marcel Charles Lapierre was born in Mirecourt in 1907 and died there in 1979. After apprenticing with Jérôme Thibouville Lamy from 1921 to 1923, he worked for many of the top bow makers of the early 20th century French school, including Francois Lotte, Louis Bazin, and Louis Morizot. Before establishing his own workshop in Mirecourt in 1948, Lapierre travelled to Paris in 1946 to study briefly with Émile Auguste Ouchard, then to Geneva, Switzerland, where he worked for Pierre Vidoudez.
