    These gueridons shows all characteristics of a piece of furniture by Adam Weisweiler (1744-1820) but was crafted around 1970.
    At the end of the 19th century, such furniture of high quality where, amongst others, produced by Maison Jansen. The originally Amsterdam family business specialised in decorative interior pieces, inspired by, or sometimes directly modelled after antique French originals.
    Furniture by Maison Jansen are characterized by their superior quality and found their way to Royal palaces and the White House at the time of the tenure of John F. Kennedy. Returning style characteristics in furniture by Maison Jansen, are naturalistic elements, such as leaf- and bamboo motifs, and the furniture often have a slender and light build, while using heavy materials such as gilt bronze, brass, polished steel and marble.
    Adam Weisweiler was born in Germany where he allegedly studied under David Roentgen (1743-1807), after which he moved to Paris where he became maître-ébéniste in 1778. He primarily collaborated with the Marchands-merciers, because they could also supply him with oriental and other luxury parts, such as Japanese lacquer panels. Subsequently, he could sell his furniture through them tot he French and English courts. Queen Marie-Antoinette had a writing by Weisweiler in the Chateau de Saint Cloud, and George the Prince of Wales ordered several furniture for Carlton House in the 1780’s.

    Weisweilers oeuvre is characterized by the combination of a multitude of luxury materials, such as gilt bronze, polished steel, Japanese lacquer, plaques of Sèvres porcelain and marble. Also a degree of detail in all parts of the piece of furniture is typical for his work. Weisweiler worked in a period of time when exoticism was a true rage in Europe, and this clearly reflects in his work. It is manifested in the lacquer panels, which can both be of Oriental and of European origin, as well as in the bamboo motif which frequently occurs in his furniture.
