Catalogue Note

Jacques Laurent Cosson (1737- 1812), received master in 1765.

This reputable ébéniste was based in the Rue de Charonne where his business flourished ranging from producing exquisite furniture such as commodes inset with porcelain plaques and some lacquered pieces to dealing in tapestries. He is most well known however, for his successful interpretation of the Louis XVI style combining elegant neo-classical forms executed in finest quality mahogany emebellished with  finely cast gilt-bronze mounts.

A commode by the same maker, was sold as lot 218, from the Vergottis collection, in these Rooms, 14th June 2000.
