This charming ''commode'' is stamped DELORME.
Adrien Delorme belongs to a line of craftsmen whose original name is Faizelot.
Located on rue du Temple, he works as a manufacturer and furniture dealer.
He was received Master on June 22, 1748. In August 1768, he was elected juror of the community of carpenters and cabinetmakers. Adrien Delorme ended his activity in 1783 and dispersed his stock in an auction which included, among other things, "quantity of dressers".
Indeed, his work - which attests to a great fantasy - is mainly characterized by curved dressers made in the Louis XV style.
In addition to the chests of drawers, Delorme also creates corner cupboards, cupboards, bookcases and even desks, which he decorates with decorations, sometimes Chinese or Japanese lacquer or European varnishes, sometimes with geometric marquetry or flowers.
The Almanacs of the time presented him as "one of the most skillful and renowned for marquetry work".
