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). Photoengraving. Process blocks on zinc and copper. "Blocks, drawings retouched, photographs for illustrations, catalogues, etc." [Mertens, 1914]. Martin Mauquoy founded his engraving firm in 1875 and had been active as an engraver at Hopland, 6 for several years before moving to this address. 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.
