Biography

Jean-Baptiste Gamichon ( ?-1832), was successively established rue Mauconseil (1799), rue de Cléry (1810) and 16, faubourg Saint-Denis (1828). He used two stamps, one with his name and the other inscribed à Paris, placed on top of each other or at each side of the piece of furniture. Sometimes, a label was added : rue de Cléry, n°58 GAMICHON, marchand ébéniste tient magasin et fabrique d’ébénisterie en tous genres, il fait aussi des envois dans les départements, à Paris. In 1827, he exhibited furniture in maple, lemonwood an amaranth at the Exposition des Produits de l’Industrie.
