Pair of chairs . J. Audry

Pair of chairs stamped J. Audry presented "in their own juice" , original conditions

 
Jacques Audry (1743-1784) Menuisier en meubles. Maître le 7 mai 1777.

The son of a craftsman from the Faubourg Saint-Antoine, specialized in cane seats, Jacques AUDRY, as a free laborer, took over the paternal workshop rue de Lappe, where he remained until the end of his life.

Despite a real talent, its production was scarce for lack of means.

We can mention Louis XVI seats of classic form, well proportioned, with discrete sculptures.

Among other things, we owe him an exceptional transition-style bergere, resting on console legs and a small carved wooden sofa decorated with interlacing.

At his death, his widow will sometimes continue his activities.
