Jean Joseph Martin - (b. Mirecourt (Vosges) 1837 - d. Paris 1910) was a French Archetier / Bowmaker.
Served his apprenticeship with Nicolas Remy Maire. In 1858 left Mirecourt for Paris to join Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume's workshop. Five years later, JJ MARTIN came back to Mirecourt (1863) to open his own workshop. He also worked with Jérôme THIBOUVILLE LAMY as they asked for his collaboration to build up their bow production.
For a brief time, Martin also worked as director for another workshop in Mirecourt by Emile MENNESSON, with the "Sainte Cécile" insignia. From that period one can find bows stamped J. Guarini. When MENNESSON decided to transfer his activity to Reims, J.J. Martin took over the workshop and continued the production for a while.
Among his collaborators (in his shop) was Joseph Arthur Vigneron.
