Catalogue Note

Gabriel Viardot (1830-1904) was one of the leading cabinetmakers working in Paris in the second half of the nineteenth century and a major exponent of furniture heavily inspired by Japanese and Chinese taste. He exhibited at the Paris Expositions Universelles of 1867, 1889 and 1900, and at the height of his activity he employed nearly 100 craftsmen in his workshop.
