Regence commode stamped Delaitre

Commode amaranth veneer geometric pattern, opening four drawers in three rows. The slightly curved amounts are decorated with falls representing women's busts and end with small arched feet. The bronzes are lion-patterned in the center and the apron is decorated with a curly hair head ending in braids that frame the face.

Among the production of furniture cabinetmaking in Paris, the dresser is among the new furniture which we find the first mentions from 1695 often referred to as the "bureau commode " and it is only from 1711 that the simple word "commode" is needed. From 1720, the decoration of copper and tortoise marquetry gives way to the new veneers in "Indian wood" and in the inventories of the time we find the name of commode "in esse" because of the amounts suggesting the outline of the letter S. At the Hotel de Gramont, the description of a commode of this form is made as follows: "commode in esse covered with violet wood furnished with two drawers from the bottom and two drawers cut from the top, decorated with his hands, key inlets and bronze ornaments in color with his red marble top ".

The falls of the commode
In the 1720s, the mythological masks succeeded the human figure, and more particularly the female figure. The term "espagnolette", a term borrowed from the world of fashion, appeared in 1723 when describing the bronzes seized by the cabinetmaker Cressent, but was known from 1700 through a hairstyle composed of a feathered toque placed at an angle.
Although the cabinetmaker Cressent is often associated with this type of bronze, many other cabinetmakers of that time adorned their furniture with this type of fall.

Louis Delaitre is received master in 1738, the same year that his brother Jean, also a cabinetmaker. Some of his furniture bears the stamp of the merchant Migeon.
