François Rémond (1747 -1812), was a leading Parisian gilder and bronze caster during the second half of the 1700’s.

He began his apprenticeship in 1763 and became a master in the guild of bronze gilders eleven years later. Rémond built up a successful business patronized by members of the French court and by the marchand-mercier Dominique Daguerre. He collaborated on some pieces with the bronze caster Pierre Gouthière, helping him on some of his larger projects and supplied clockmakers and ébénistes such as David Roentgen with decorative figures and ornaments, as well as finely cast gilt bronze furniture mounts.
