Catalogue Note

Germain Landrin, received Master in 1738.

Cabinetmaker on the Faubourg Saint-Antoine and then rue de Charonne, Germain Landrin subcontracted for important cabinetmakers such as Pierre II Migeon, Denis Genty and Jean-François Oeben. Landrin specialized in meubles d'appoint and meubles à système and this pair of tables is very close to those made by Migeon, for whom Landrin worked for over 15 years.

Similar tables are illustrated in the books of Jean-Michel Franc, Jean Nicolay and Pierre Kjellberg.
