The cabinetmaker Jacques Dautriche produced furniture in the Transitional style, during the late Louis XV and early Louis XVI periods, when Rococo forms were slowly becoming more neoclassical. Dautriche is also known for producing furniture with geometric marquetry panels set within gilt-bronze banding or filets, as well as his work for the comte d'Artois, brother to Louis XVI, to help furnish his Parisian residence at the Palais du Temple in 1777; Dautriche died one year later.
In 1967 the Boston Museum of Fine Arts was given by Jack Linsky a commode 'à portes' stamped by Dautriche (see M. Blaise, 'Jacques Dautriche, ébéniste sous Louis XV et Louis XVI', L'Estampille-L'Objet d'art, July-August 2001, p. 59, fig. 14).
A very similar commode by Dautriche sold 30 000 € in Paris, Drouot, étude Farrando, 11 October 2019, lot 97.
