Wooden furniture manufacturer. 

Man of letters, painter and cabinetmaker, Mailfert made copies of furniture.

He opened the Ateliers d'Art in 1904 rue Notre-Dame-de-Recouvrance in the hotel called "François 1er". 200 workers work on his creations exported all over the world.

The 1929 crisis inspired Mailfert to make the biggest hoax in the history of the antique market: he invented the character of Jean-François Hardy of the Loire School, who won him orders for copies of furniture from this famous non-existent cabinetmaker ...

But this sham will not be enough to save the Workshops from bankruptcy. These were bought in 1935 by the Amos family, which continued to operate.
