Third son of Claude François Vuillaume. Worked for his brother Jean-Baptiste from 1832-1842, then returned to Mirecourt to manufacture student grade instruments known as ‘Stentor’. These were mostly made by A. Darte and his wife, and are distinguished by the shield mark bearing the name Stentor on the back of the scroll. The name was later sold to Gautrot, and remains a flourishing company supplying student instruments. Original N. Vuillaume instruments are branded internally.
