Balthazar Lieutaud

Balthazar Lieutaud  (1720-1780) was a master cabinetmaker from a long family tradition, appearing among the greatest cabinetmakers in Paris during the reign of Louis XV and the early neoclassical period. Lieutaud received master-cabinetmaker in March 1749 and specialized in luxuriously decorated clock cases for regulators and cartels, for which he entrusts the making of the gilded bronze decorations to the most skilled bronziers and carvers of the time. Lieutaud ran a workshop in the rue de la Pelleterie and later in the rue Denfer.
