18th century

The cabinetmaker Jean David Fortunios worked in Paris, rue de Charonne, in the 1730s. He would also have been known under the French name of Fortanier.
He is credited with the stamp ''I.D.F'' on the few Louis XV pieces of furniture he made in veneer or with floral marquetry panels or trellises.
The Jean Gismondi collection has a pair of corner cupboards by this cabinetmaker illustrated in P. Kjellberg, Le Meubles français du XVIII° siècle, p.321; let's also mention a ''bureau plat'' sold during the dispersion of the Dubernet-Douine collection in Paris, on April 12, 1946.
