Paul Lorange

There were two makers of this name, father and son, both of whom worked in Lyon. Paul (I), 1873-1920, was born in Mirecourt and later worked for Paul Blanchard in Lyon and Léon Mougenot in Brussels before setting up his own workshop in Lyon in 1899. He worked to a high level on various classical Cremonese models using good, deeply coloured varnish, sometimes shaded in imitation of age. His son Paul (II) was born in Lyon in 1900 and worked with Paul François Diter in Marseilles, the company known as ‘Diter & Lorange’ from about 1926. In 1933 Lorange established his own shop in Marseilles, continuing to make fine classically modelled instruments.
