  • Design for a Commode and Console: Plate 9 of Collection de meubles et objets de goût, 1802
    Pierre de La Mésangère (French, 1761–1831)
    Paris
    Colored engraving; 7 3/8 x 12 1/4 in. (18.4 x 30.6 cm)
    Harris Brisbane Dick Fund, 1930 (30.80)

    La Mésangère's serially published Collection de meubles et objets de goût premiered in 1802 and provided a significant outlet for the dissemination of French fashion in the early nineteenth century. The journal contains illustrations of luxury items that would have been found in the hôtels of the wealthy Parisian bourgeoisie, including the latest wares of accomplished ébénistes. As can be seen by comparing this image to the Winterthur Museum's labeled pier table (1961.1693), Lannuier appears to have turned to La Mésangère for inspiration.
