Surname Debey
Given Name  
Dates early 18th century
Provenance Flanders, but has been considered French
Notes The reading of the mark de Bey is Dutch (ie de bij) and means the bee. Thus Debey was most likely Flemish, as is suggested by the design of his recorders.

Other extant instruments by him include an oboe (GB: Oxford) and an incomplete oboe d’amore (B: Brugges).

Maker's mark: I/DEBEY·/bee (seen front on)
