Stamped François Reizell.
Francois Reizell was a German artisan who began working in the faubourg St. Antoine and became established in 1770 in the rue de Saint Peres. He became a master in 1765 and employed as his companion Joseph Baumhauer. His principal client was the Prince de Conde, for whom he made a number of pieces at the Palais-Bourbon, and also at Chantilles.
His work is much admired for its floral marquetry and the richness of its decoration, always considered to be both sophisticated and elegant. His later work during the 1770's and 80's was dominiated by marquetry of geometric motifs and, particularly, of trophies. His works are in the collections of the Louvre, Palais de Versailles, and the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris.
