    Jean-Henri Riesener is a French cabinetmaker of German origin (born on July 4, 1734 in Gladbeck, Westphalia, and died in Paris on January 6, 1806).

    Born in Germany (Westphalia), Riesener, like many cabinetmakers of his time, came to Paris to complete his future training. He arrived in Paris around 1755 and entered the workshop of Jean-François Oeben, himself a German immigrant. When Oeben died in 1763, he took over his workshop and married his former master's widow, Françoise-Marguerite Vandercruse, sister of the cabinetmaker Roger Vandercruse, much to the dismay of one of Oeben's other students, his rival, Jean-François Leleu. As long as Riesener did not have his own master's degree, he used the stamp of J.-F. Oeben: until 1767, his furniture bore the name of his predecessor Jean-François Oeben.
    He was awarded the title of Master in 1768, and in 1774 he was appointed "ordinary cabinetmaker to the king". From 1769 to 1784, he supplied the court and the royal family - notably Queen Marie-Antoinette - with sumptuous furniture in the neo-classical style. He is considered one of the best representatives of the transitional style and in 1769 he completed the famous secrétaire à cylindre de Louis XV, or "bureau du Roi", begun by Oeben nine years earlier1.
