Secretary, commode and table, Friedrich Frickhinger, 1834
German-born Blechschmidt worked for leading Paris cabinetmakers and specialized in colourful marquetry (inlaid work) in various materials. He used an Italian Renaissance style for the marquetry here. Friedrich Frickhinger, one of his pupils and also a German active in Paris, made the furniture. He placed his signature and the date, 1834, on the inside of the secretary.
