Initially a free worker since 1745 in Paris, Charles Topino became a master in 1773. He supplied many merchants, haberdashers and cabinetmakers. He produced mainly Transitional and Louis XVI style pieces. The latter are often recognizable, since his production is very personal. Indeed, he particularly appreciates the marquetry known as usual where vases, teapots, cups, books, cards meet on the happiness of the day or small tables of living room. In this way, our small sliding table can certainly be attributed to him.
