Germain Landrin, maître in 1738.
This table displays a cube parquetry pattern characteristic of Germain Landrin, though developed by his contemporary Jean-François Oeben. Landrin mainly produced small-scale pieces, which he often sold through marchands-ébénistes such as Migeon and Oeben.
A pair of closely related kidney-shaped tables de salon, stamped Landrin, was sold from the collection of Lady Sassoon, Christie's, London, 24 November 1955, lot 67 (illustrated in P. Kjellberg, Le Mobilier Français du XVIIIe siècle, 1989, p. 470). Another almost identical table, but with marquetry top, stamped Landrin, was sold from the collection of Victor Rothschild, 148 Piccadilly, sold Sotheby's house sale, 20 April 1937, lot 170.
