The historian:
Reserved only for members of the town nobility, these arm carriages are often depicted in painting highlighting the heraldic crests in order to identify the passenger. The sedans were one of the most important aesthetic signs of wealth during the ancien regime. Its construction required the work of a cabinetmaker, a leather worker, an upholsterer, a bronzist and some reputed painters.

These vehicles, at the time, were small fortunes. Currently they are often seen again in the most important museums, in the museum residences, or in the historic buildings of the city as well as in the luxury hotel halls or in the famous collections. Exposed to the elements and the revolutionary anger, these jewels are very rare in our times to be found, especially those with an eighteenth-century domed roof and with decorated heraldic crests.

Its rarity combined with the beauty of the gold background, the richness of the decoration, the magnificence of the noble coats of arms and the original interiors, make this sedan is considered a true museum rarity.
Although this remains an unverifiable hypothesis, it seems likely that this sedan derives from the atelier of the Martin brothers whose archives inform us that they collaborated with the greatest decorators of their time like Christophe Huet.

In fact, the gold-weatherproof context was a technique very unknown at the time and we find that only in some Parisian atelier were used, some examples we find them at the Museum Nissim de Camondo Etienne and Guillome Martin gave their name to this precious technique of decoration.

From an imitation of the oriental lacquer in the first phase a French technique of polychrome paints will be developed, decorated with the latest fashion decorations (chinoiserie, animals, pastoral, hunting scenes ...)

* Certificate of origin and historical authenticity with photo, signature and evaluation of the sedan.
