Roger Vandercruse, dit Lacroix (1727-1799) was received maître in 1755. The design for this tricoteuse was probably first conceived by the powerful Parisian marchand-merçiers, and made with minimal variations by ébénistes such as Martin Carlin (see Kjellberg, Le Mobilier Français du XVIIIe Siècle, Paris, 1989, p. 160) or Jean-Henri Riesener, who supplied one to Marie-Antoinette at Saint-Cloud – now in the Musée Nissim de Camondo (cf. Gasc, N. and Mabille, G. The Nissim de Camondo Museum, Paris, 1991, p. 38).
A tricoteuse of nearly identical design, also by Roger Vandercruse, was sold Christie's London, 11 June 2003, lot 51.
