Franois Rbestck, matre in 1766.
Established first in rue de la Roquette, Franois Rbestck subsequently moved to rue de Charenton. Producing mainly japanned commodes and secretaires abattant, for which he was famous, he excelled as well with floral marquetry. Particularly the type of contrasting marquetry with musical trophies and draperies as on the fall-front of the secretaire here offered. A similar panel is illustrated on an encoignure by Rbestck in P. Kjellberg, Le Mobilier Franais du XVIIIe Sicle, Paris, 1989, p. 748, ill. F.
