  • The widow of the prolific maker, Jean George, continued his business despite having sold most of the stock, with George's only apprentice Pierre-François Mathias de Beaulieu.

The same collection contains a box dated just a year later than the present lot that is inscribed simply "Beaulieu à Paris."
