The two artists began working together while living in Paris. Mère produced his first coloured and embossed leather works in 1901. Until 1927, he presented several extraordinary bindings, boxes and small objects and pieces of furniture to various Parisian Salons. During Mere's lifetime and onwards, French Museums acquired several precious objects, remarkable for their delicate design and technique. Several pieces by Mère, including a cabinet decorated with embossed leather flowers reminiscent of the present lot, are in the collections of the Musee d’Orsay, Paris.
