Gabriel Huquier 1740s

This is a republished print from a 1740 series by Gabriel Huquier called 'L'Oeuvre de Juste-Aurèle Meissonnier'. The original Meissonnier designs had been commissioned for rococo goldsmiths: one of these swords was produced for the 1725 wedding between King Louis XV and Maria Leszczyńska of Poland.
