Marc Laberte Atelier Violin
Born in 1880, Marc Laberte was the director of the Atelier Labert-Humbert and its extended firms. The workshop itself was founded in 1780 by the great grandfather Laberte and was one of the largest shops in Mirecourt until the mid-twentieth century when it closed. By 1920, nearly 400 craftsmen were employed to make instruments of all levels. In addition, many skilled master makers worked for Laberte, including Camille Poirson, Charles Brugere, and Georges Apparut. The workshop owned a fine collection of instruments from all the famous makers such as Stradivari, Lupot, Stainer, and Vuillaume. They were meticulously examined and used as models for their own instruments.
