Bernard Molitor, maître in 1787.
This secretaire à abattant or bonheur-du-jour is almost identical to one illustrated U. Leben, Molitor, London, 1992, p. 145, fig. 147, which was exhibited at the Galerie d'Art, Luxembourg, Bernard Molitor, October-December 1995 (Catalogue, p. 95, fig. 39).
The relief panel, which is seen on a number of pieces by Molitor, is in the manner of Claude-Michel Clodion (1738-1814).
