The Beurdeley family consisted of three generations of fine quality French cabinet makers working from 1818 to 1895. They were renowned for exceptional metalwork, with designs on exceptional eighteenth century pieces. Their gilding and hand chasing were of such a high quality that it is difficult to distinguish it from late eighteenth century work.
Beurdeley also specialized in the manufacture of luxurious French furnishings. Much admired for 19th-century interpretations of Louis XV designs, their extraordinary works earned them a Gold Medal at the Paris Exhibition Universelle of 1889. Their expertise was in high-quality, 18th-century revivals of Louis XV and Louis XIV-style furnishings. Beurdeley exhibited works at the International Exposition of 1870, the Amsterdam Exposition of 1883, and the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1889. Beurdeley made an indelible mark on the history of 19th-century French furnishing; Creations remain among the finest of the period.
