PECCATTE, François Born 1821, died 1855 Mirecourt France. Younger brother of Dominique, above. Trained in Mirecourt but joined his brother in Paris c.1840-1842. May have worked briefly for J. R.

B. Vuillaume 1852-1853, but his last bows are weak. Round sticks. Branded: PECCATTE, rarely with PARIS on the opposite side. [Millant/Raffin]
