Catalogue Note

The arms of Jacquelot de Chantemerle (Bourbonnais) and probably those of du Bois de Saint-VIncent (Provence).
Mathias Corsin, born at Lille on 23 February 1725, was the son of Pierre Mathias and his wife, Marie-Marguerite-Rufine (née Saint Paul). He opened a studio in the Lille flower market in 1754 from where he later moved to premises in rue de la Clef, Lille. In October 1770 he married, probably as his second wife, the widow of François-Joseph Marcy. Corsin was a member of the Lille goldsmiths’ guild until 1791.
