Biography of Francois Breton - John Dilworth 

BRETON, François Worked circa. 1778-1830 Mirecourt France.
Luthier to the Duchesse d’Angoulême. Very prolific and much-imitated maker.
His own style is quite refined, generally a little over-sized, with flat arch and clear yellow varnish,
although showing some lack of attention in the details, and materials very variable in quality.
Thousands of factory made instruments produced in his style after his death (see above).
Also made good cellos and bows.
Branded on back button, and occasionally inscribed within pegbox: F. BRETON. Printed labels:
F Breton, Musicarius / Mitecurti, anno 1805. F Breton breveté Luthier de S.A.R. / Mme. la Duchesse d’Angoulême / à Mirecourt, 1816 BRETON BREVETÉ / D
