Adrien Fleury (1721-1774)
Fleury was based in the Faubourg Saint-Germain, working initially in the Rue Traversière, then moving to the Rue de Charonne and subsequently on to the Rue Saint-Hyacinthe. Inventories list works inlaid with marquetry in the Chinese taste and the few pieces that are encountered today are almost all characteristic of commodes in the early Louis XV style.

A related bureau plat by Fleury sold as lot 215, Sotheby's, Chatsworth, The Attic Sale, 5th October 2010, (£25.000).
