A room with large dimensions and accentuated shapes as can be seen in Migeon's work.

Stamped by Pierre Migeon and JME on the right rear pillar.

Louis XV period.

Pierre Migeon (1701-1758), received master around 1725 (the registers dating from the beginning of the reign of Louis XV not having been preserved) figure among the greatest cabinetmakers of the 18th century. He delivered his furniture to a rich aristocratic clientele which included the Duke of Orleans, son of the Regent, the Duchess of Rohan, Marshal de Noailles, the Duchess of Epernon, the Cardinal de Rohan, several bishops, ambassadors of foreign nations ... From the 1740s, he received orders from the Garde-Meuble de la Couronne and from the Menus-Plaisirs. He enjoys the protection of the Marquise de Pompadour, whose extravagance towards him is mentioned by d'Argenson in his memoirs.

He makes furniture in rosewood and amaranth veneers. Migeon's furniture stands out for what we can call a robust elegance and a pronounced taste for curves as on our chest of drawers above which is a work representative of his work. His son, Master in 1761, keeps his father's workshop. (Source: 18th century French furniture, Kjellberg)
