Footnotes

  • An identical bureau plat by Krieger is illustrated in Mestdagh, p.311.

    The firm Krieger were furniture manufacturers, established in 1826. They produced and exhibited pieces in Great Exhibitions, such as the 1900 Exposition Universelle. Their style was inspired by eighteenth century items and Empire designs, with a modern impression of Louis XV and XVI period furniture. The company changed names and locations several times. First started by Antoine Krieger and his brother Nicolas, Maison Krieger was situated at 17, rue Saint-Nicolas, Paris. In 1853, the firm called Antoine Krieger et Cie moved to 76, rue du Faubourg-Saint-Antoine. 1856 was the year Antoine died, so the son in law inherited the company and renamed it Cosse-Racault et Cie. In 1880 the company became Krieger, Damon et Cie, due to the merger and then moved on to 74 rue du Faubourg-Saint-Antoine.
