Martin Ohneberg, became a Master in 1773.
Martin Ohneberg’s reputation is excellent. His very high quality furniture is entirely of the styles of Transition and Louis XVI which includes plated furniture as well as marquetry-covered items. The forms of his works remain very classical and the bronzes are generally sober.
Several pieces from him are displayed at the Louvre Museum in Paris.
