Louis Joseph Morizot père
Louis Joseph Morizot, or Morizot père, learned bow making from Eugène Cuniot-Hury and Charles Nicolas Bazin, for whom he worked from about 1901 to about 1914. Morizot then began working for Eugène ...Read More Sartory, though his model hewed closely to the work of Bazin and he continued to use miter joints for some time. By 1920 he had settled on a definitive model, which employs Sartory-style frogs and is generally refined and graceful.
Morizot's sons began to assist him around 1920, and with their help the Mirecourt workshop became extraordinarily productive and well-known, supplying numerous firms in France and abroad. In 1933 he established an official partnership with his sons, "Morizot & fils," which developed into a robust collaboration between the sons themselves, whose joint output both before and after their father's death in 1957 is described as the work of "Morizot frères." He used two different "L. Morizot" stamps throughout his career, both of which were also used by his sons.
