Victor Fétique

Victor Fétique was born in 1872 and was apprenticed to Husson and Bazin in Mirecourt before moving to Paris in 1901 to work for Caressa & Français. He worked there for 12 years alongside Claude Thomassin, who was a strong influence on him. In 1913 he established his own workshop and was assisted by his brother Jules and various other bow makers, including Louis Morizot. His work won medals in Brussels, Barcelona, London and Livorno, and at the 1927 Paris Exhibition he was awarded the title ‘Greatest Archetier in France’. He was assisted by his nephew André Richaume from 1927, and continued to work until his death in 1933.
