This armchair is said to be of the Cresson model, from the name of the family of carpenters who, over several generations, marked history by their mastery of wood, more particularly armchairs. This renowned family supplied seats to the House of Condé and to the Duke of Orleans. The armchair we have here could more likely come from the work of a second generation Cresson, probably Jean-Baptiste or Louis, since the return to symmetry and the floral decorations situate us in the second half of the Louis XV period, after the Rococo period. Today, armchairs from the Cresson family can be found in many museums, including the Louvre, the Carnavalet Museum and Wadesdon Manor in London.
