This Louis XVI period bergere en cabriole, C1780 is by Noel-Tousaint Porrot, whose atelier was in the Pont-au-Choux, Paris. Porrot became a master menuisier in July 1761. The Chateau of Mongeoffroy, which is historically significant in furniture design terms, remains almost exactly as it did in 1777, having survived the Revolution. Almost all the original furnishings remain in the rooms for which they were made. A number of the chairs that have remained in this family home from the 1770s are by N.T.Porrot. The chair has fluted and cabled legs. The shoulders are carved with "Policemen's hats".
