Peccatte was an exceptional decorator of porcelain active in France in the third quarter of the nineteenth century. His figurative paintings in the neoclassical and orientalist styles adorned vases, urns and plaques from makers in Paris and elsewhere. See the pair of porcelain vases decorated by Peccatte that were offered by Christie's in New York on June 8, 2014 in lot 246 that achieved a hammer price of $30,000.
