Born in Mirecourt in 1875, the youngest brother of Charles François, Langonet trained with the Chipot-Vuillaume company and worked for Paul Mangenot. Subsequently he followed his brother to W.E. Hill & Sons in London, where he worked on copies of Cremonese instruments labelled by the Hills. He then left for Paris to join Silvestre & Maucotel, and from 1910 worked independently in Nantes, where he was active until at least 1934.
