Transitional period Louis XV - Louis XVI, second half of the 18th century, Paris, France.

Installed for about thirty years on the rue Mazarine and then on the rue de Bourbon-Villeneuve, his varied work is marked by a very fine quality of manufacture, assembly and sculpture. His very sober Louis XV chairs are remarkable for the suppleness of their lines and the fluidity of their moldings. Jean-Jacques Pothier and the famous carpenter Georges Jacob seem to have collaborated in the execution of certain orders : we know of similar seats bearing one or the other stamp. He was also one of the first to apply neoclassicism to chairs and made some masterpieces in the Transition style
