François Peccatte (born Mirecourt, 10 March 1821; died Paris, 30 October 1855) was a very talented archetier.
He is said to have been destined for greatness, but died at the age of 34 before reaching the height of his craft.
He was the brother of Dominique Peccatte and father to Charles Peccatte. Peccatte went to Paris for a short period early in his working life, then returned to Mirecourt and opened a shop in 1842, employing several workers to assist in his commercial production. François had some association with his brother Dominique, presumably during his stay in Paris and again when Dominique returned to Mirecourt.[1] "Indeed, much of François’ best work shows the strong influence of Dominique".[2] "François Peccatte, was also a fine bow maker who worked in Mirecourt. He returned to Paris not long before his premature death."[3]
