Lot Essay

Ledoux-Lebard records Edmond Poteau as having had a workshop at 9, rue Mignon, Paris, between 1856 and 1874, and at 59, rue de Turenne towards the end of the century. Poteau's work favoured the Transitional and Louis XVI styles, with particular emphasis, as demonstrated here, on fine marquetry and parquetry inlay.
