Léonard Boudin cabinetmaker and famous Marchand Mercier (1735 in Paris - November 20, 1807 in Paris).

Early in his career, he was commissioned by Pierre Migeon IV, Louis Peridiez and Louis Moreau to make furniture in flower marquetry and Chinese-style varnish. He acquired his master's degree on March 4, 1761, and moved to rue Traversière.

He is considered a famous craftsman of the period.

From 1772, he became a dealer. He traded with, and in turn employed, such fine cabinetmakers as Denizot, Evalde and Charles Topino.

The furniture bearing his mark bears witness to his fine taste.
Almost all of them are distinguished by their beautiful lines, harmonious proportions and light, lively appearance. Given that he used his stamp as a trademark rather than a brand name, his signature is never insignificant, due to the competence that guided him in his purchases and the pride he attached to the reputation of his house. Louis XV pieces are likely to be in his hand, while Louis XVI pieces are often the work of other cabinetmakers, sometimes working to his specifications. His furniture is particularly sought-after.

His production is characterized by "fairly extensive floral compositions, inlaid with colored wood" and "large butterfly-wing veneered rosettes".
