Paris, circa 1785, stamped Adam Weisweiler on the right back.
Adam Weisweiler was born in 1746 in Korschenbroich (Germany). Working amongst other for Maison Lignereux and merchant Dominique Daguerre, he provided furnitures to the Court of France, Mary-Caroline of Austria, Maria Ferodovna who was Catherine II's daughter-in-law. He continued to work during the Empire, after the French Revolution, and died in Paris in 1820.
His production is especially abundant and his style illustrates the Pompeian one. He prefered porcelain panels (Sèvres and Wedgwood) merchant Daguerre provided him. Weisweiler didn't make much marquetery but prefered mahogany veneering.
