  • Adam Weisweiler (1750 — 1810) was a renowned French master cabinetmaker (ébéniste) in the Louis XVI period, working in Paris. Weisweiler worked notably for the marchands-merciers, who alone could supply him with the Japanese lacquer panels that, combined with ebony and refined gilt-bronze, characterize some of his finest work. Weisweiler supplied the writing table of steel, lacquer and ebony and gilt-bronze for Marie Antoinette at the château de Saint-Cloud in 1784.  Also furniture for the Prince Regent (later George IV) at Carlton House, London. Weisweiler specialised in small refined pieces, with fine lines, delicate legs with light interlaced stretchers, and gilt-bronze low-relief plaques and mounts, often decorated with panels of Japanese lacquer and Sèvres porcelain plaques, even panels of pietra dura. Weisweiler weathered the Revolution and in 1810 he was supplying Queen Hortense and collaborating with Pierre-Philippe Thomire. After his retirement, his son Jean Weisweiler continued the workshop until 1844
