his ebeniste was probably of Scandinavian extraction. On 26 March 1766 he became a master in Paris, where he was active for virtually the next twenty years. He settled at La Main d’Or in the rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine. The furniture bearing his stamp is in the Transitional style and dates from c. 1770-80. Most of his output is ornamented with geometric marquetry, especially octagonal parquetry, similar to that found in Carlin’s work.
