Jean-François Dubut was at the same time cabinetmaker and merchant street of Faubourg Saint-Antoine "near the grid of the foundling children". He died in 1778 and his goods were sold at a public sale held on May 11 of the same year. The wording of his sale gives a good vision of his production: "libraries, secretaries in cabinet united and with cylinder, tables with the duchess, empty-pockets, oval and round tables, with steps and with cylinder, tables called mignonnettes, tables of night, offices, cupboards, chests of drawers, raggies, toielttes, screens, screens, all in Indian wood ".
