Honoré Derazey

Born in Mirecourt in 1794, after his apprenticeship there he went  to Paris, working for several luthiers in the city before returning to open his own workshop in Mirecourt in about 1840. He was a very fine and prolific maker, much in the style of Vuillaume, and won many awards in Paris and London. His label continued in use after his death in 1883, in instruments of generally inferior quality made by his son Justin and his assistant Paul Alexandre Mangenot, and the Laberte-Magnie company.
