Jean-Baptiste Gourdin, matre in 1748.
Son of Jean Gourdin, Jean-Baptiste established his workshop in the rue de Clry near that of his father. He manufactured mostly Louis XV seat-furntiure. This suite is closely related to a fauteuil in the Muse des arts dcoratifs, Paris (inv. 7269) (G.B.B. Pallot, The Art of the Chair in Eighteenth Century France, Paris, 1989, p.186).
