Jean-Pierre Latz (1691 –1754) settled in Paris in 1719 and received the patent d'ébéniste privilégié du roy before 1741, which allowed him to freely exercise his craft without having to obtain his master cabinetmaker status. His main activity was the manufacture of cabinets and cases for clocks, however, several pieces of high quality furniture were appropriately attributed to him by H. Hawley, based on the study and the approximation of the gilt-bronze mounts. Whilst his style is very Rococo with lavish inlays and lively shapes and scrolls, the more symmetrical feel of the marquetry on the present piece points to it belong to the latter part of his oeuvre.
