Jacques I Androuet du Cerceau , also given as Du Cerceau , DuCerceau , or Ducerceau — was a well-known French designer of architecture, ornament, furniture, metalwork and other decorative designs during the 16th century, and the founder of the Androuet du Cerceau family. He died in Annecy. The nickname "Cerceau" comes from the emblem of a ring that appears in lieu of a signature on engravings by Jacques Androuet. Answering the pressure of demand for authentic "Henri II" furniture designs in the s, suites of designs by Jacques Androuet du Cerceau for chimneypieces, furniture and arabesque ornament were reproduced by the new technique of heliogravure.
