Catalogue Note

François Lieutaud was born around 1665 in Marseille to a family of sculptors and served as the patriarch for a long line of cabinetmakers including his son Charles and grandson Balthazar Lieutaud. Besides his lineage, little else is known about his activity. André-Charles Boulle cited Lieutaud in a legal proceeding in 1719 as an expert witness. Like Boulle, Lieutaud also produced his own high quality mounts, which can be seen on the present example.
