Walnut, richly carved,
Lyon, around 1770, attributed to Pierre Nogaret
The artfully, richly carved walnut frame is typical for the work of Pierre Nogaret (1718-1771), a Paris-born menuisier working in Lyon. The original cover in Aubusson tapestry is very well-preserved and already shows elements of early classicism, for example, the laurel medallions hung on bows with representations of the seasons of spring and winter. The canapé is a very high-quality late work of Nogaret, which is also testified by the realistically carved flowers on the backrest.
