"François Garnier (1744), From The Castle Of Saint-cloud"
From the château de saint-cloud Curved Louis XV period chest of drawers in violet and satin wood, original bronzes, Breccia Aleppo marble top, opening with two drawers, stamped F. Garnier and Jurande hallmarks (JME) on the tops and marks of the château de saint-cloud. Louis XV period, 18th century. GARNIER François Father of the famous cabinetmaker Pierre Garnier, François Garnier worked on rue du Faubourg-Saint Antoine where he was a juror of the corporation of carpenters-cabinetmakers from 1742 to 1744. As the use of the stamp was not compulsory during the start of his career, few works could be attributed to him with certainty. However, the signed furniture that we find shows great thoroughness and real talent. He died in Paris in 1774 rue des Moineaux. Having started his exercise under the Regency, the stamping of his achievements was not yet imposed on him, nor of use ("many of his works, made before 1743, cannot be identified for lack of stamp" - Pierre Kjellberg, Le French furniture of the 18th century, Dictionary of cabinetmakers and carpenters, Ed. De l'Amateur, Paris, 1989, p. 337).
