Between 1770 and 1780 Montigny produced a series of grand and distinguished bureaux plats, all of which have an ornate ormolu frieze or incorporate the Greek key motif. Another example of the Greek key motif is in the Musée Cognacq-Jay, which has two long drawers and a smaller central drawer.
Phillippe Montigny (1734 – 1800) was born in Paris, the son of Louis Montigny an ébéniste and artisan privilegé in the Faubourg Saint-Antoine. He became a maître in 1766 and took over his father’s workshop in the cour de la Juiverie, where he was to remain for the rest of his life.
