Catalogue Note

Mathieu Criaerd, received Master in 1738.

Mathieu Criaerd (1689-1776), was born into an important family of cabinetmakers on the rue Faubourg Saint-Antoine and supplied furniture to Jean-François Oeben and marchands merciers such as Thomas-Joachim Hébert. Many of his pieces were delivered to members of the Royal Family and aristocracy, such as the commode in the Cabinet Intérieur of the Dauphin at Versailles (Castle of Versailles, inv. V4948), and the commode and the encoignure for Comtesse de Mailly for the Château de Choisy (Musée du Louvre, inv. OA 11292 and OA 9533).
