Louis XVI "demi-lune" commode stamped Pierre Roussel

A very rare and elegant commode "with open corners" of half-moon shape in precious wood frieze. It opens in front of two drawers superimposed without visible rail in satinwood quarte-leaf frieze in a rosewood frame. The upper drawer presents a rectangular reserve with a herringbone pattern in a frame of gilded bronze pearls, keyhole and pull rings on a solid disk. This reserve, underlined by a molded and gilded bronze ring, simulates a drawer of small height. In the center of the lower part, the decoration of a magnificent oval table lined with gilt bronze pearls, two keyholes (one simulated) and four draw rings on a solid disk. Framed with gilt bronze pearls. The lateral parts with corners present three small shelves in grey veined white marble bordered by a gilded and pierced brass gallery. The front and back uprights are rounded. It stands on four tapered legs topped by a molded ring and finished with small embedded hooves. Grey veined white marble surrounded by a gilded openwork brass gallery decorated with draped trimmings.

PIERRE ROUSSEL : 1723 - June 7, 1782 - Received master on August 21, 1745
Established rue de Charenton at the "Image de Saint-Pierre", his boss, Pierre ROUSSEL, comes from a family whose father is himself a journeyman cabinetmaker and his four brothers, all carpenters. He quickly acquired a great reputation as a skilful maker of fine and refined furniture and supplied furniture to the Prince of Condé for the Bourbon Palace and the Château de Chantilly. In 1762 he became a juror of the community and in 1769, the Almanach de Vray Mérite cited him as "one of the first cabinetmakers" in Paris. The corpus of Pierre ROUSSEL's production extends over the Louis XV and Louis XVI periods.
