Louis Michel Lefèvre, maître in 1749.
Recorded in rue Saint-Nicolas until the early 1780s, Lefèvre executed mainly Louis XV and Louis XVI seat-furniture. Interestingly, Lefèvre is one of the rare menuisiers who also worked as an ébéniste, as some commodes en tombeau bear his stamp, sometimes along with that of Jean Mathieu Chevallier (maître in 1742).
