Adam L'Echopié (Senior) (fl 1772)

Biography of French Clockmaker Adam L'Echopié (Senior) (fl 1772)

Adam L’Echopié (Senior) was a good maker of clocks working in Paris in the late 18th century and was particularly known for his bronze and marble pieces.

Adam L’Echopié had two sons, both of whom worked at Rue Neuve des Petits Champs from circa 1812, the same address from where the father is recorded working from 1772. They presumably continued his business and would have used the same casemaker.
