Dominique Peccatte (1810-1874) was an influential French luthier and bow maker.[1]
He was apprenticed in Mirecourt and later worked with Jean Baptiste Vuillaume.

He is notable for adapting the "hatchet-shaped" type head — a model arrived at by Tourte
and is considered one of the most influential bow makers. His brother François Peccatte and
nephew Charles Peccatte were also remarkable bow-makers.
Peccatte’s two most well known pupils were Joseph Henry and Pierre Simon.
He also purportedly taught François Xavier Bazin. (Wikipedia)
