During one of the most unstable periods in French history, in the latter part of the eighteenth century, Bernard Molitor (1755-1833), son of a Luxembourg miller, rose to prominence in the field of luxury cabinet-making or ébénisterie in Paris. Accompanied by extensive photographs of the furniture itself, most of which are reproduced here for the first time, the main part of the text discusses the life and work of Molitor. This is followed by a complete, illustrated catalogue of his known works to date. Profusely illustrated in black and white and color.
