Eugéne Cuniot-Hury violin bow
French bow maker Eugène Cuniot (1861-1910) studied and worked with his father, bow maker Pierre Cuniot (1839-1884) in Mirecourt, France. Upon marrying into the prominent Hury family in 1894, he became known as "Cuniot-Hury." His bows were influenced by Dominique Peccatte, François Nicolas Voirin, and members of the Bazin family, including his famous colleague, Charles Nicolas Bazin.
Cuniot-Hury's Mirecourt workshop grew to rival Bazin's, employing several outstanding and prolific bow makers, including Louis Morizot, Alfred Lamy, and the renowned Émile François Ouchard, his main assistant who took over the shop after Cuniot-Hury's death.
