François Mondon (1694 – 1770) is a great specialist in dressers in the style of the Regency.
He comes from a family of Dauphinois craftsmen who would have dispersed in different regions of France and even abroad.
We do not know the date of his accession to the mastery, which is probably in the 1730s.
In his studio in rue du Faubourg-Saint-Antoine, under the name "La Pie", he made a lot of furniture.
He delivered a number of them to his fellow cabinetmaker and dealer Pierre Migeon.
His stamp, without a first name initial, also appears on some Louis XV chests of drawers with a little more flexible shapes, with two drawers, almost always with a visible crosspiece, as well as on secretaries, flat desks, sloping desks...
