Bow Type: Violin
Price: Upon Request
Maker: Francois Peccatte
Description: (1821 - 1855) Younger brother of Dominique Peccatte, François Peccatte began his apprenticeship near Mirecourt but left to join his brother in Paris sometime around 1840. Dominique was a formative influence on his brother's work, which features square, strong heads and is of good quality. The brothers collaborated on certain bows, especially after François returned to Mirecourt in 1842, where Dominique followed in 1847.
François maintained a separate workshop from his brother's in Mirecourt and seems to have been quite successful and prolific. He moved to Paris in 1852 to work for J.B. Vuillaume, though his work for the shop is not easily distinguished from others bearing the Vuillaume brand. In 1855 he succumbed to ill health and died at the age of 34.
This bow is an exceptionally pure example of Francois’ work. The stick is made of Amourette wood and is mounted in nickel and ebony. Certified by Bernard Millant. Weight: 64.5 grams.
