b. 1757, Mirecourt; d. there, 1833. His business was carried on at the sign of " A la ville de Cremone." He was a clever workman, and made large quantities of instruments, fairly good, although deficient in some respects. They are generally on a large pattern, slightly arched, the varnish either red-brown tinged with yellow or bright red colour; the sound-holes rather peculiar in cut, very widely opened in the middle; the tone is large, and the instruments are suitable for use in orchestras, those with red varnish being generally superior in work.  They are branded, just where the label is usually placed, with the inscription: "A la ville de Cremone, D. Nicolas, aine." He first exhibited in 1802, being the first maker of Mirecourt to do so; he received no award then, but in 1806 was awarded a silver medal at the Paris Exhibition. At the time of his death about 600 workmen were employed in his workshops.
