Catalogue Note

Joseph-Émmanuel Zwiener (b. 1849) worked in Paris between 1880 and 1895. He established his workshop at 12, rue de la Roquette, becoming one of the premiere haut luxe cabinetmakers of the late 19th century. The exceptional quality of Zwiener’s craftsmanship and extensive usage of fine gilt-bronze invites comparisons to the work of famed ébéniste, François Linke (1855-1946). Working in several styles fashionable in Paris at the time, Zwiener copied mainly Louis XV pieces from public collections, adapting them in his own exuberant interpretation of rococo. At the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1889, he received the gold medal and a note of high praise from the jurists.

Zwiener Jansen Successeur was a ‘department’ of the Maison Jansen production. Jean-Henri Jansen bought the Zwiener archives and rights circa 1900, renaming it Zwiener Jansen Successeur and marking the bronze mounts ZJ.
