Louis Cresson (1706 – 1761) – Carpenter in seat – Received Master on January 28, 1738. He was part of a very famous family of cabinetmakers. He moved to rue de Cléry under the banner “À l’Image de Saint Louis”. Despite a real talent, his production was not abundant. He manufactured, in the Louis XV style, various seats caned or covered with fabrics, remarkable as much for their form as for their delicacy of execution, the whole decorated with rich sculptures of flowers, foliage or shells. He was also the one who carried out, towards the end of his life, the joinery of a rolling machine, ordered for the Duke of Burgundy, grandson of Louis XV.
