Joseph Gaudé

Joseph Gaudé was born in Mirecourt in 1818. He learned his craft in his home town, and his early work is in the style of Adam, but gradually Etienne Pajeot became the stronger influence, and he may have been employed in the Pajeot workshop in the 1830s. He was recorded as a bow maker active in Mirecourt from 1839 to 1854, and thereafter as a ‘luthier’ until 1881.  His work is rare and is branded GAUDÉ J.
