Object Literature

Maison Vedder (fl. 1842-1876)

Maison Vedder was first established by Jean-Frédéric Vedder in 1842 and swiftly attracted the well-to do Parisian clientele following his participation in the 1844 exposition two years later where he was awarded a bronze medal. Specialised particularly in furniture incorporating various inlays and surface decoration such as porcelain plaques, bronze work, and ebony inlays, Vedder was likewise known as a capable restorer of Boulle marquetry work. His participation in the 1849 exposition in Paris saw him awarded the silver medal. Succeeded by his son, the firm stayed active in Paris until 1876 with various addresses around the Place des Vosges, the oldest planned square in the city.
