Observation, this dresser has been the subject of a refinishing and cleaning gilded bronzes in the rules of art in force in the eighteenth century. Jean-Charles Ellaume Parisian cabinetmaker under Louis XV was admitted to the master's degree on November 6, 1754. For more than thirty years, he exercised rue Traversiére-Saint-Antoine and produced sought after works. We know a lot of furniture marked with his stamp. These are mostly Louis XV commodes pleasantly drawn and made with care. At the Earl of Oiliamson, at the Chateau de Fontaine-Henry, is a small dresser of the same model as that which we present to you. Others have appeared in the collections of F. Pouy and Civialle. Ellaume was considered, in his time, as an excellent cabinetmaker, many museums hold of his classified works: one of his dressers, kept in the castle of Morlanne is classified as an object in historical monuments since June 20, 1979. Two other dressers are protected: registration of a dresser on April 9, 2009 kept in the so-called Louise-Aimée room at the Vendeuvre castle and classification of a dresser since July 29, 2011 at Gizeux Castle. The Wawel Royal Castle has several of its dressers in its collections. The Bernay Museum of Fine Arts also has several dressers in its permanent collections as well as the Musée des Hospices Civils de Lyon.
