Provenance: Former collection of Madame Houdart.
Received Master on May 7, 1766, François Rübestück finally settled in Rue de Charenton to make high quality furniture.
If he excelled in furniture covered with European varnish with Chinese decoration, he also made furniture frequently inlaid with flowers or very different attributes such as those of Music for example.
