Stamped Antoine Gailliard.
Maître le 19 septembre 1781
Because of the late date of his accession to the master's degree, this carpenter initially produced only seats and beds, but following the abolition of the guilds in the last years of the 18th century, Antoine Gaillard began to create cabinetwork of excellent quality and very beautiful proportions.
Gaillard, who had a workshop on rue Saint-Nicolas and then, at the time of the Revolution, on rue de Charenton, delivered seats to the castle of La Roche Guyon, and then worked for the imperial furniture guard.
