Louis-Charles Carpentier, maître in 1752.
Established in the Rue de Cléry, Carpentier enjoyed considerable success from the beginning of his career until 1779, when he sold his atelier with its outils, établis, ustensiles et bois to Jean-Baptiste-Claude Sené. His clientele included various illustrious names such as Baron Rolin d'Ivry, the Marquise de Brunoy, the Duchesse de Villeroy and the Duc d'Aumont. In addition, he supplied the Prince de Condé with furniture for the Château de Chantilly, the Château de Vanves, and the Palais Bourbon (B. Pallot, Furniture Collections in the Louvre, Dijon, 1993, vol. II, p. 189). A related pair of fauteuils by Carpentier was sold anonymously, Christie's, London, 28 November 2001, lot 272, and a further related set of four fauteuils, was sold anonymously, Christie's, New York, 19 October 2007, lot 272.
