Footnotes

  • Ledoux-Lebard records Edmond Poteau as operating from 9, rue Mignon between 1856 and 1874, and then moving to 9, rue de Turenne, where he conducted business until the late 1890s. Known for his cabinetry that reflected Transitional and Louis XVI aesthetics, his works reflect an emphasis on fine marquetry and parquetry inlays.

    A secretaire à abattant by Poteau with a very similar marquetry panel was sold at Christie's London, 23 February 2006, lot 143.
