Mennégand was born in Nancy in 1822 and apprenticed in Mirecourt. From 1840 he was employed by Claude Victor Rambaux in Paris, and in 1851 he was working for Charles Adolphe Maucotel. Between 1852 and 1857 he was established independently in Amsterdam, but then returned to Paris, working at 26 rue de Trévise. He died in Villers-Cotterêts in 1885. His reputation rests mainly on his restoration work, but he produced many fine Stradivari copies at his Paris shop.
