Jacques Pierre Letellier was a Parisian carpenter who became a master in 1747. Born into a family of carpenters, he developed his activity in the Faubourg Saint Antoine. His production was mainly in the Louis XV style. Pierre Kjelleberg's book "Le mobilier français du XVIIIe siècle" indicates that he made both luxurious seats and seats that are called of simpler use. Thus, he would have executed ten Transitional armchairs for the Marquis de Marigny, today held in a Parisian collection.
