The brothers Roger (b1901) and Max (b1903) were trained by their grandfather Sébastien Auguste Deroux in Mirecourt, and worked there also with Léon Mougenot, before joining Harry Dykes in London. They then established their own shop in the Rue de Rome, Paris, in 1923. A quartet won a gold medal at the Cremona Exhibition of 1949. Their work is very sophisticated, on classical models, and finished with a fine, clear orange-red varnish, and includes fine bows. The bow-making tradition was continued by Roger’s son Jean-Jacques (1928-1998) and Max’s son Bernard (1929-2017).
