B. 1713 Kehl, Alsace, d. 1799, Venice

Initially a soldier and musician, he worked in Venice from 1750, and his label is one of the most commonly found in instruments made there in the last half of the eighteenth century. His style is consistent and distinctive especially in the fashioning of the scroll, and features technical aspects derived from the Cremonese tradition, probably acquired from Pietro Guarneri, who was still active in Venice in 1760. Later Deconet work suffers from a more formalised, less classical style and a harder varnish.
