It has a violet wood veneer decor.
It has fine quality bronzes, bearing the “crowned C” check mark, used between 1745 and 1749 (on keyholes, offcuts, handles, “bottom of lamp”, hooves).
It has a “Breccia Aleppo” marble.

Violet wood
Stamped three times "HEDOUIN"
Bronzes with "crowned C"
18th century


Historical annecdote:
The “crowned C” punch is a punch of a few millimeters. It has long intrigued specialists who believed that it was the signature of a bronzier or a cabinetmaker.
It was Henry Nocq who identified this mark as a check mark. Indeed, the "Crowned C" was a hallmark used in Paris between 1745 and 1749. Each craftsman then had to go to the brand's office to have his bronze works hallmarked and pay a tax (Bibliography: Pierre Berlet, Les Bronzes dorés 18th century French, ed Picard, 1987)
