Catalogue Note

Jean-Jacques Werner (1791-1849) was one of the most important decorators and furniture makers of the Restauration period and received important commissions from the Court.  He was noted for insisting on using only indigenous French timber for his furniture which consisted of seat furniture as well as case furniture.  See, for example, an armchair he supplied to the Tuileries, illustrated, D. Ledoux-Lebard, Le Mobilier Français du XIX Siècle,  Paris, 2002, p.629.
