The mark "F L" corresponds to the stamp of François LIEUTAUD (1665 - 1748), received Master at the end of the 17th century,
He executed with Charles Boulle, some of the most beautiful furniture of Versailles.
The acts of a trial at the time indicate that, exceptionally, King Louis XIV had granted him the rare privilege of being able to create and manufacture the bronzes for his furniture, because at that time, only the corporation of bronziers had this exclusivity. In the History of Furniture, the use of walnut for the construction of drawers, which is the case with our chest of drawers, testifies on the one hand to a very Parisian work and on the other hand to a meticulous work: c 'is a control unit ...
Later, with the shortage of walnut following the harsh winter of 1709, the walnut will be replaced by oak. François LIEUTAUD is one of the greatest cabinetmakers of his time.
To date, we find on the market, very few works by him, which makes our dresser, described below, a rare piece of furniture. The last official sales recorded in the last 20 years:
