Jean-André Reiche


(1752 - 1817)

Jean-André Reiche is one of the most important Parisian bronziers of the Empire period, he was originally from Leipzig and settled in Paris during the reign of Louis XVI, becoming a master founder in June 1785. His workshop moved to the rue Notre-Dame-de-Nazareth and his renown immediately grew. At first designated as a bronzier and marble specialist, during the Empire he was listed as a “marchand-fabricant de bronzes”. He died on March 18, 1817, leaving his business to his son Jean Reiche, who continued to run it successfully during the Restoration period.
