Catalogue Note

Roger Vandercruse, dit Lacroix (1727-1799), received maître in 1755

The design for this tricoteuse was probably first conceived by the powerful Parisian marchand-merciers, and made with minimal variations by ébénistes such as Martin Carlin (see Kjellberg, op. cit., p. 160) or Jean-Henri Riesener, who supplied one to Marie-Antoinette at Saint-Cloud – now in the Musée Nissim de Camondo (cf. Mabille, op. cit., p. 38).

A tricoteuse of nearly identical design, also by Roger Vandercruse, sold Christie's London, 11 June 2003, lot 51.
