Louis XIV Period

Height : 55 cm (21.6 in.)

Generally the productions created in Saint Lucie wood are attributed to the César Bagard workshop, sculptor from Nancy. However, other craftsmen of which a certain Foullon is known to have had an important activity after the sumptuous edicts of Louis XIV in 1689 and 1709. The big aristocratic families had replaced the silverware that had been sent to be melted, by carved objects in Saint Lucie wood, of which the grain is fine and tight enabling a precise engraving.
