Fidelys Schey was received master on February 5, 1777. Born in the Duchy of Baden, this prolific cabinetmaker, despite the relative brevity of his career (he died on July 28, 1788), established himself on the rue de Faubourg Saint-Antoine and opened, near his workshop, a sales store which he entrusted to his wife. His production includes Transitional and especially Louis XVI furniture. It is known that in 1786 he provided game tables for the castle of Fontainebleau.
