Description

Comparative Literature:
Denise Ledoux-Lebard, Les Ebenistes du XIX e siecle 1795 –1889,Val-d'Oise, 1984, p. 410.

Jean Lejeune was a tapestry maker associated with Jean-Charles Poussin and they were established at 94, rue de Clery. They were former pupils of  the chairmaker Jean-Baptiste Boulard and became his successors. In 1811, Lejeune became one of the ébénistes who was recommended to the Garde-Meuble Imperial. He also tried with his associate to obtain the contract to supply the tapestries to the Garde-Meuble, but without success. He supplied the seat furniture during the Restauration, which permitted Lejeune to state on his labels , `tapissier du roi et des princes. 'At the beginning of Louis-Philippe’s reign their business was taken over by Laflèche who was one of the principal tapestry suppliers of the Garde-Meuble of the Crown.
