Etienne Pajeot Violin Bow

Étienne Pajeot ( b. 25 Jan 1791 – d. 24 Aug 1849) was an illustrious French archetier and bowmaker.

“Pajeot remains one of the most brilliant crafstmen of his generation. He produced a large number of bows of remarkable quality, appreciated by musicians for their technical possibilities and by collectors for their aesthetic qualities.” – Millant Raffin

Son of Louis SIMON PAJEOT (or PAGEOT), Etienne PAJEOT began his apprenticeship early on with his father.
Upon his father’s death in 1804, Etienne PAJEOT,  then thirteen years old, continued his training with another Mirecourt master whose name remained unknown until now.
