Elegant chest of drawers between two, opening with three drawers, with a pronounced curve on the front and on the sides, entirely inlaid with violet wood debited in ''butterfly wing'' curling.
The pinched front uprights rest on wide feet fitted with gilt bronze clogs.
We are certainly in the presence of a piece of living room furniture at the sight of the rich ornamentation of gilded and finely chiseled bronzes with which it is adorned (falls, clogs, keyholes, handles, etc.)
This chest of drawers is stamped on the front left upright ACriaerd for Antoine Criaerd.
Of Flemish origin, elder brother of the cabinetmaker Mathieu Criaerd, Antoine Criaerd exercised the same profession in the faubourg-Saint-Antoine during the period 1720-1750. It is possible that he provided furniture to the cabinetmaker and merchant Migeon.
The few works that bear his stamp are related to the style of the Regency or the beginning of the reign of Louis XV.
Beautiful pinkish gray marble marrying the curves and with pronounced beak moulding.
H. 85 cm x W. 97 cm x D. 55 cm
