The furniture made by Adam Weisweiler is a favorite among antique enthusiasts. Probably born in Germany, Adam Weisweiler moved to Paris at the beginning of the reign of Louis XVI and was received as a master on March 26, 1778. Settled in the rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, he specialized in luxury cabinet making and supplied Dominique Daguerre's store as well as the Maison Lignereux.
He became famous and his furniture was bought for the Queen and the Château de Saint-Cloud, for Marie Caroline of Austria and for Maria Fedeorovna, the beautiful daughter of Catherine II.
Worthy representative of the Pompeian style born after the discoveries of the ruins of Pompeii, he realized numerous pieces of furniture which put forward this taste for Antiquity and regularly decorated his furniture with porcelain plates.
Far from disappearing with the French Revolution, he settled at 13 rue des Tournelles where he had an important furniture store during the Empire.
He signed his productions A. WEISWEILER.
