After Oeben died, his widow continued his workshop: guild regulations allowed her to keep using her dead husband’s name stamp. The workshop was headed by Riesener, who married Oeben’s widow in 1767 and became a master cabinetmaker a year later; he then began to use his own stamp. The underside of this table bears both stamps, indicating that Riesener at least completed it.
