Fernand Kohl

Fernand Kohl's workshop was situated at 55 rue Traversière, Paris and exhibited at the 1889  Paris Exhibition Universelle, where he was awarded a medal.  He was particularly known for executing exceptional furniture in the Louis XV and Louis XVI styles using rich mahogany and rosewood veneers and fine gilt-bronze mounts.

Examples of Fernand Kohl's work can be found in the French National Collection at the Musée d'Orsay, Paris, France.
