Catalogue Note

Adrien-Pierre Dupain, received master in 1772

Dupain was established in the Rue Charonne, Paris and under Louis XVI carried out commissions for various Royal residences, in particular for the Queen at the Château de Saint-Cloud. His stamp is most unusual consisting of his initial and surname engraved in reverse in the form of a circle (see Pierre Kjellberg, Le Mobilier Français du XVIIIe Siècle, Paris, 1998, 286-290).

A similar bergère is illustrated by Jean Nicolay, Maîtres Ebénistes Français, Paris, 1976, p. 166, fig. D
