Important cabinetmaker and painter on porcelain of the Second Empire, Julien-Nicolas Rivart, was born on July 1, 1802. On September 18, 1849, he registered his 15-year patent for "a type of inlay that can be done in wood lacquered or not, copper, marble, and any other stone, as well as on velvet" He aims at a material that had never been used in marquetry: porcelain. "All the research that has been done in this kind of industry has been unsuccessful and I first made this discovery"
