Rosewood and amaranth

A free worker before obtaining his master's degree, Jacques Bircklé worked in rue de Charenton then rue Saint-Nicolas. Between 1785 and 1789, he received commissions for Queen Marie-Antoinette at the Château de Saint-Cloud, for Madame Élisabeth de Montreuil, for the Duke of Orléans, for the Princess of Lamballe.
In view of his abundant, varied, high-quality production, Bircklé appears to be a conscientious cabinetmaker, not seeking luxury and preciousness but more decorative effect.
Bircklé excels there thanks to his talent as a marker. In the majority of his furniture, practically devoid of bronzes, there is indeed a predominance of marquetry, in bright and contrasting tones, designed with simplicity, without superfluous details. Made of light stained wood, they most often stand out against a dark veneer background. Alongside these characteristic products, Bircklé also produces simpler furniture, always of good quality, veneered in rosewood, kingwood, mahogany or satin.
