Martin (° Antwerp, 14.8.1848; + Antwerp, 6.11.1924) and his two sons Hubert (° Antwerp, 19.8.1878; + Bergen-Belsen [D], April 1945) and Alphonse (° Antwerp, 28.10.1880; + Antwerp, 30.10.1954). Martin Mauquoy founded his engraving firm in 1875 and had already been active as an engraver at this address for several years when advertising photoengraving here in March 1904 (Gazet van Antwerpen, 27.3.1904).

Photoengraving. Process blocks on zinc and copper. "Blocks, drawings retouched, photographs for illustrations, catalogues, etc." [Mertens, 1914]. Moved to this address at the end of 1904 (Gazet van Antwerpen, 27.11.1904). Moved to no. 7 on 15.6.1914 and occupied a studio there for several decades. The photo-engraving side of the business continued into the interwar period under the management of Hubert, who had trained as a graphic artist. Subsequently, under the impulsion of Alphonse, a trained sculptor, the firm successfully moved into medal making. It remains a leading firm in the specialised field of medals, decorations and awards.
