Charles Claude Husson

Charles Claude Husson was born in Mirecourt in 1847. Early on, he worked for his father, Charles Claude Nicolas Husson, alongside Joseph Alfred Lamy and his step-brother, Joseph Arthur Vigneron. In 1873, he moved to Paris to work for J.B. Vuillaume. Unfortunately, Vuillaume died shortly after in 1875. During this time, Husson met Fran├žois Nicolas Voirin, an accomplished bow maker who had also started out in Vuillaume’s shop. He worked for Voirin for many years before leaving Paris to work for the Gand & Bernardel Workshop. After many years, he set up his own workshop.

Husson was strongly inspired by the work of Voirin. His bows are known for their balance and stability.
