Christophe Wolff:

Became maitre ebeniste in 1755. Of German extraction he was born in 1720 and specialised in marquetry and mechanical tables. In 1759 according to a brief article in the periodical “La Feuille Necessaire”, his production included pieces veneered with floral marquetry, others worked in solid wood and finally furniture “ en vernis de la Chine dans le gout le plus nouveau”. His work can be seen in the Muse des arts decorative, The louvre, Camando Museum and Cognacq-jay Museum in Paris.
