The serpentine top framed with a conforming bronze guard strip, and enclosing a leather writing surface
Claude Charles Saunier (1735-1805) whose father and grandfather were cabinet makers, was received as a maitre ebeniste at the extraordinarily early age of 17, in 1752, making his mark early: he was espoused by the marchand mercier Daguerre, who sold many of his pieces to clients in England, Germany and Holland. Examples of his works are to be seen in the Metropolitan Museum New York, the Louvre, Fontainbleau and the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam. The bureau plat on which this piece was modelled may be seen in the Huntingdon Art Gallery, San Marino, California.
