Germain Landrin (1710-1785) was one of the principal suppliers to his fellow ébéniste Pierre II Migeon, with many of the pieces he made veneered in very much the same fashion as the present piece. He also supplied furniture to Denis Genty and appeared as a creditor in the inventory taken after the death of J.F. Oeben in 1764. Well regarded, Landrin became an adjudicator in his guild in 1746 and was elevated to principal in 1772 (see Pradère, op. cit.).
