Work of the Louis XVI period stamped by Joseph Stockel and bearing the hallmark of Jurande JME.
Joseph Stockel (1743-28/05/1802) was received master on August 02, 1775. Originally from Germany, mentioned in Paris in 1769, he worked on rue de Charenton until the Revolution and then on rue des Fossés-du-Temple. Among his clients were a number of merchants as well as the Count of Provence, brother of the King and future Louis XVIII. All of Stockel's furniture is in the Louis XVI style, and mostly made of mahogany. The large sheets of veneer used are framed by fine wood or bronze moldings.
Many of his pieces of furniture can be found in museums and institutions (MAD Paris, Victoria & Albert Museum London, Château de Bourges in the Indre region, ...).
