Philippe-Claude Montigny, received master in 1766

This model of desk stamped Dubois or Montigny illustrates the Greek taste which appears in the decorative arts from 1755. Some larger versions exist (with a width between 115 and 130 cm). A copy was delivered in 1765 by Poirier for the Earl of Coventry (see A. Pradère, Les achats parisiens de mobilier du comte de Coventry, L'Estampille, l'objet d'art, June 1996, pp. 46-53), its width was 146 cm. It seems that we should date this model before 1763, date on which we found 'un bureau de 4 pieds et demi de bois verni, fait à la grecque' (a varnished wood desk in the Greek taste) in the inventory after death of Jacques Dubois. About Philippe Montigny, we can imagine some subcontracting relationships with Dubois and the marchand-mercier Poirier.
