Claude Thomassin was taught initially by his cousin Louis Joseph in Mirecourt, where he was born in 1865. Both received training from Charles Nicolas Bazin, and Claude went on to Paris to work for Gand & Bernardel in around 1885. He there came under the influence of Voirin, and opened his own business in 1901 at 37 rue de Paradis. His work is of the highest quality. He died in Tribaldou, Seine-et-Marne in 1942.
