Jean-Baptiste Boulard (circa 1725-1789)


Maître on April 17, 1755

He supplied marchands merciers  and a distinguished clientele, notablyle Comte d' Artois for Bagatelle and le Duc de Penthièvre for the Château de Bizy. From 1775, he is one of the official carpenters of the Garde-Meuble of the Crown, for the service of the Menus-Plaisirs of the King. The most important deliveries for the Crown date from 1783 to 1786 when Marc-Antoine Thierry de Ville d'Avray, the newly appointed Commissioner General of the Garde-Meuble, undertook to refurnish the main royal residences. They continued until the fall of the royalty in August 1792, the "widow Boulard" and her son Benoît-François continuing the activity of the workshop in the rue de Cléry. Boulard's deliveries were mainly destined for Versailles, Marly, Montreuil, Fontainebleau, Compiègne, Rambouillet, Saint-Cloud, La Muette, Choisy, the Tuileries; in addition to these royal houses, he also provided services to the numerous administrations of the Crown in Paris.
