Gérard Péridiez, maître in 1761.
Péridiez originally mainly supplied marchands such as Boudin, Malle and Migeon but eventually opened his own shop. His oeuvre consisted almost exclusively of furniture in the Louis XV style although his appears to have worked just up to the Revolution.
A table of identical form but with slightly differing mounts and with different floral marquetry was sold anonymously, Sotheby's, New York, 31 October 1987, lot 75, and another from the collection of Sir Anthony de Rothschild, Bt., sold Christie's, London, 13 June 1963, lot 56. A further example, apparently not signed, with the same design above the legs, from the collection of Ernst Graf zu Rantzau, sold Hermann Ball and Paul Graupe, Berlin, 1931, lot 48. Another table of very similar form, with tambour shutter door and simulated tambour swing drawers stamped by Jacques Laurent Cosson and once part of the collection of Louis-Jean-Marie de Bourbon, duc de Penthièvre (d. 1793) was sold Christie's, New York, 21 October 1997, lot 158).
