Charles Alfred Bazin

The son of Charles Louis Bazin, Charles Alfred was born in Mirecourt in 1907 and was the last of the Bazin family of bow makers. He joined the family business in 1922 and assisted in its running from 1925. After the war he set up his own shop in Mirecourt, and in 1952 he took over his father’s business. He was a proud man who worked only for private clients and who persuaded the French Academy to accept the word ‘archetier’ into the French language. He retired peacefully in the 1980s, leaving behind many bows stamped CHARLES BAZIN or CHARLES BAZIN – FRANCE.
