This dresser is Regency period. It comes from the Dauphiné, it is curved in front and on the sides, and it has exceptional inlaid decoration in geometric patterns (tinted fruit wood playing on the contrasts of color).
She has three drawers with brass flutes in the middle. Drawers on the drawers have "sphinges" and "valet" handles.
The plateau is surrounded by a bronze mold. It has a decor in clear and dark wooden games: reserves four-lobed are underlined nets that intertwine (in the manner of productions of the workshop Hache).
The sides also have quatrefoil motifs framed by nets.
This superb dresser rests on curved legs adorned with acanthus leaf clogs in gilded bronze.
This richness of marquetry, the forms of the motifs used as well as the wood used (notably that of the "immersed oak" for the blackened nets), make it possible to say that this chest of drawers is close to a work of Pierre Hache (1703-1776).
Walnut, plum tree, mulberry, ash, boxwood, "immersed" oak
Period early 18th century
Historical annecdote : The "submerged oak" or "swamp oak" owes its dark color to its prolonged immersion in the water. Like ebony, its natural hue can go as far as black. It was often used in veneer in the seventeenth and eighteenth century for bouquets of marquetry, and nets in furniture Dauphine.
