Received Master on May 31, 1760.
This talented cabinetmaker lived on rue Sainte-Barbe and stopped working in the first years of the reign of Louis XVI. The seats that we know of him are in the Louis XV style. They are classical models, with supple shapes, harmonious, very elegant, perfectly balanced. The decoration, flowers and moldings include details, refinements that indicate quality manufacturing.
