Royal commode from Fontainebleau castle, 1773 dated and stamped of Stumpff

Large and beautiful rosewood marquetry commode / chest of drawers, finely enhanced with ormolu decoration, grey marble. 18th century circa 1773. Very elegant, its proportions are perfect, without any fault. Louis XV-Louis XVI Transition period, our dresser is signed of Stumpff and has inventory numbers from the Royal Castle of Fontainebleau (FN 834).
We thank the curator of the Chateau de Fontainebleau who confirms that our piece "was delivered to the Garde-Meuble, by Gilles Joubert, cabinetmaker of the king, , October 4, 1773" for the service of the King. This expression does not necessarily mean that it was destined for the King, but only for his service in general. For that order, Joubert had therefore subcontracted with Stumpff. The last mention of our commode is in 1787, then the chest of drawers was sold during the revolution and lost.

Jean-Chrysostome Stumpff (1731-1806) - Master August 27, 1766 has German origins such as many Parisian cabinetmakers of the 18th century.The major part of its production is in the transition and Louis XVI style and always excellent quality. Our dresser proves that it was supplier of the crown in collaboration with other cabinetmakers.

Our beautiful commode is in excellent condition.Very healthy furniture that has been kept in a good original condition without accident or major restoration.It has been restored by our cabinetmaker with a real varnish. Mercury gilding of the bronzes (ormolu) is quite well preserved.

Very beautiful work of marquetry, with beautiful colors.
