Catalogue Note

The present model guéridon titled by Maison Krieger: Guéridon Rond Empire retailed circa 1900 by the renowned marchand Mercier and cabinet maker for 450 Fr. Antoine Krieger and his brother Nicolas launched Maison Krieger in 1826 at 17, Rue Saint-Nicolas, Paris.  In 1850 the firm was established as Antoine Krieger et Cie. However, when Antoine Krieger died in 1856, his son-in-law began running the company and decided to change the name to Cosse-Racault et Cie.  Finally, in 1880 the name was changed to Krieger, Damon et Cie when the firm merged, becoming one of the largest mechanized workshop of furniture in Paris, located at 74, Rue Du Faubourg-Saint-Antoine. Numerous furniture styles were displayed and created by Maison Krieger, producing and exhibiting copies and pieces of 18th century and Empire designs, while also creating modern interpretations of the Louis XV and Louis XVI styles. They were exhibitors at the major exhibitions of the 19th century up to the 1900 Exposition Universelle. Like Maison Jansen, Maison Krieger is recorded to be an active client of François Linke, his workshop being nearby; occasionally, the firm's paper label can be found on Linke pieces.
