Commode, attributed to Charles Cressent, c. 1745 - c. 1750

eikenhout, gefineerd met violethout en bois satiné, monturen van verguld brons, blad van brèche de Médous gris marmer, h 91.0cm × w 147.0cm × d 65.5cm. More details

Cressent was renowned for his commodes fitted with rich gilt-bronze mounts. Sometimes he modelled the mounts in the shape of human figures or animals. Although this example is simpler, it is nevertheless in keeping with Cressent’s pictorial idiom. The mounts do not draw undue attention to the two drawers; the handles are fully integrated into the general design.
