Stamped J. BIRCKLE Louis XV period
H: 89.5cm - W: 97cm - D: 56 cm

Jacques BIRCKLE (1734 - 1803)
He obtained his Masters on July 30, 1764.
He was one of the suppliers of the Garde Meuble under Louis XVI.
Between 1785 and 1789. Marie-Antoinette placed him orders at the Château de Saint-Cloud, Madame Elizabeth in Montreuil, the Duke of Orleans or the Princess of Lamballe.
In view of his production, dense, varied, of good quality, easily adapted to the evolution of styles,
BIRCKLE presents himself as a conscientious cabinetmaker, who does not seek luxury and preciousness but much more the decorative effect.
He also excels there thanks to his talent as a marketer.
In the majority of his furniture, practically devoid of bronzes, a predominance of marquetry in bright and contrasting tones, drawn with simplicity, without superfluous details, prevails. Made of light stained woods, they most often stand out against a dark veneer background.
Their effect is further enhanced by the chosen themes such as vases of flowers, urns, draperies, ribbons, musical trophies, various attributes and even landscapes of scenes in the antique, framed by Greek nets. On his death, his workshop was taken over by his son, who kept it until 1825.
