Rare and charming Louis XV commode, curved on all sides, opening three drawers on three rows wearing a marble breach of the North (it is most likely its original marble).
Built on a fir structure (walnut drawers) rosewood veneer enhanced reserves herringbone mahogany veneer framed boxwood nets, it has curves and graceful fretwork.
The furniture is adorned with an ornamentation of chiseled bronzes and gold lacquer of good quality: pull handles, lock entries, cul-de-lamp and hooves. If the bronzes are still rocky and perfectly asymmetrical, the enslaved lines of the dresser betray rather the end of the Louis XV period.
The commode is in a beautiful original condition, with no veneer missing and always adorned with its period bronzes and old iron locks, a bronze key for the three locks (plus an iron key). Furniture presented restored and refinished to the stamp.
Note: Make no mistake, the stamp of Kemp is not posed by chance on this small dresser "between two" while sober, it comes to validate its original invoice and quality.
Stamped G. Kemp for Guillaume Kemp and brand of Jurande.
Parisian work of the late Louis XV.
