Jean Hauré

(1739 - )


Jean Hauré was a member of the Académie de St. Luc and became a maître-fondeur making furniture and gilt-bronze objets d'art for the Garde-Meuble de la Couronne from 1785-88. He is perhaps most noted for his work with Guillaume Benneman in the updating of anumber of commode originally made by Jseph Stöckel. He is also recorded as supplying a set of gilt-bronze appliques for Marie-Antoinette’s card-room at Compiègne, which were cast by Forestier and chased by Thomire. In his capacity as entrepreneur, Hauré also supplied other bronzes d’ameublement for the royal palaces such as a set of chenet that were delivered to Louis XVI’s Salon de Jeu at Fontainebleau in 1786.
