Jean Adam, born in Mirecourt in 1767, was the first member of the celebrated family of bow makers by this name. His work, which is relatively rare, is typical of the French school of bow making around 1800. He may have been a pupil of Charles Tourte, although this is speculation, based only a similarity between their work. He was assisted by his son Jean Dominique in his latter years, and he died in 1849. His bows are stamped ADAM.
