In this room…
The writing desk or escritoire. This small piece of furniture was used for writing and was designed specifically for women. It is signed Jean-Henri Riesener, one of the best-known cabinetmakers in the 18th century, and would have belonged to Marie-Antoinette.
The octagon base table. The polished tabletop, created at the Sèvres Manufactory, is decorated with bird feathers and insect wings. This tabletop with drawers is signed by the French master cabinetmaker Adam Weiswiler, who worked during the reign of Louis XVI.
