Kingwood Plated "Commode Tombeau" by Jean-Charles Saunier

The kingwood plated "commode tombeau" has three rows and four cabinets that open towards the front. They are visibly separated by “traverses”.
The commode is shapely and curved; therefore it corresponds perfectly with the fine detail on the cabinets which frame the handles. The detail is in kingwood and in the style of “ailes de papillon”, butterfly wings. It uses lighting to its advantage because it is very fine, so it almost disappears which creates an optical illusion.
Each side of the commode is decorated with a stylized flower.
The commode has beautiful ornamentation that is in finely carved gilded bronze with flowers and leaves on the corners, feet, around the keyholes, and handles.
It is topped off with a “brèche d’Alep” marble.

Jean-Charles Saunier became a master on August 27, 1743. He comes from a famous and large family of cabinetmakers. He is one of the first of the Saunier’s to gain recognition. Jean-Charles took over his father’s studio which resided on rue du Faubourg-Saint-Antoine in Paris. He always leaves a large and visible stamp on his beautiful commodes. His curved commodes have marquetry that is delicately and finely done.
