bonheur du jour- god's prayer stamped Garnier

This mahogany furniture in the shape of daytime happiness consists of a top that unfolds and forms a flap. The bleacher consists of 6 drawers. Between the four feet is housed a spacer which unfolds to form a prie-dieu. When closed, a large golden bronze seed adorns its center, which serves as a support for the prie-dieu when it is open.

Pierre Garnier ( 1726 - 1806)
Garnier works for architects among others from Wailly, but also Boullée and Brongniart
He is best known for his Greek style, pure neoclassical style, but there are also some pure Louis XVI creations of very high quality.
The peculiarity of the keyholes with handles in the shape of oak acorns which seem unique in the repertoire of bronzes of the time.
