Maker Background

Born in 1833, Jerome Thibouville's presence in the world of violin-making consolidated in 1861 with his marriage to Marie M. Lamy. Together, they united esteemed instrument-making families, establishing the renowned firm Jerome Thibouville-Lamy, popularly known as J.T.L.

The firm specialized in crafting various instruments and accessories. Its bow-making division began around 1870 under Jean Joseph Martin's guidance. Despite Jerome's passing in 1902, the firm persevered under various leaderships until 1968. Countless skilled bow makers from Mirecourt, including Georges E. Barjonnet, Mars Auguste Husson, and Marcel Lapierre, honed their craft within these walls.

However, the standardized models of the firm unfortunately obscured the individual characteristics of these artisans. Nevertheless, J.T.L. produced a significant array of high-quality bows, particularly flourishing between the two World Wars with high-quality standards.
