Exceptional Louis XVI secretaire stamped Caumont

In mahogany and mahogany veneer inlaid with crosses in filleted frames. It presents oval and spandrel-shaped Paris porcelain plates decorated with flowers and foliage in antique vases enhanced by a border of blue "partridge eye" motifs, each of the plates set with a row of gilt bronze pearls. It opens with a flap revealing four drawers and two compartments, with two doors at the bottom. Rounded mounts with flutes, tapered legs. Rich ornamentation of chased and gilded bronze composed of vases, asparagus flowers and laurel torus locks.
White marble framed on three sides by an openwork gallery.



The application of porcelain plates on particularly precious furniture dates from the middle of the 18th century, reaching its peak between 1765 and 1780. Launched by the Parisian merchant Poirier to satisfy a demanding and refined clientele in search of novelty and taken up by his successor Daguerre - this "French porcelain" was used by the great cabinetmakers who supplied the crown.

Jean Caumont (Master on 14 December 1774), established in rue Traversière, took an active part in the Revolution, during which he was elected judge to the Commercial Court. The Transition and Louis XVI styles dominate his work.
