Fine Transition ormolu mounted tulipwood and marquetry Commode

The breakfront shaped Brèche d’Alep marble top above two long drawers decorated sans traverse with geometrical inlay framed by a flower-filled trellis pattern, with ormolu neoclassical mounts, on four cabriole legs ending in foliate and lion feet sabots.
Stamped L.BOUDIN, master in 1761
Circa 1770

Master in 1761 Léonard Boudin executed as well deeply Rocaille, as Transition pieces of furniture. In the early 1760’s he specialized in the taste “A la Grecque” The elegant shape of this commode is inspired by the mahogany or satiné veneered commodes supplied by Jean-François Oeben for Madame de Pompadour or the duc the Choiseul for example.
