Stamped N.T Porrot (Noël-Toussaint Porrot received Master in Paris in 1761
Noël Toussaint Porrot (received Master on July 22, 1761)
A furniture carpenter, Noël-Toussaint Porrot was received as a master in Paris in 1761. He settled in rue du Pont-aux-choux where he practiced for more than twenty-five years. He specializes in seats and is particularly fond of small Louis XV style convertible armchairs. He also produced Louis XVI seats, in various shapes. He notably called on the gilder Desfontaines to embellish his productions. All his furniture was well proportioned and skillfully carved.
Noël-Toussaint Porrot, who is mentioned for having sold works by several of his colleagues, also made the current seats of the Château de Montgeoffroy.
The Porrot stamp also appears on rare occasions on inlaid furniture. This may mean on the one hand that Noël-Toussaint Porrot produced only a few cabinet-making pieces of furniture or that he, as a merchant, affixed his stamp to the marquetry productions of his colleagues that he offered in his shop.
