Bonheur du jour with central projection in ebony veneer, bird eye's maple and porcelain plates.
The central body of the upper part is decorated with a large rectangular porcelain plate decorated with a gallant scene in the style of the 18th century and the interior is entirely veneered with bird eye's maple. On each side a compartment entirely veneered with bird eye's maple and glazed on two sides. These three compartments are framed at the top and bottom by rectangular porcelain plates with motifs of gallant scenes.
The lower part also with a slight central projection is decorated on the belt with three rectangular porcelain plates decorated with gallant scenes, two of which are signed Thuillier.
The bottom is mirrored as well as the spacer shelf. The fluted feet are terminated by top feet.
From the middle of the 18th century, haberdashers bought porcelain plates from the Sèvres factory to adorn furniture, which thereby became the most prestigious furniture of the last two decades.
This type of decoration continued in the 19th century and increased from the second half of the 19th century. Empress Eugénie, nostalgic for the reign of Marie-Antoinette, was no stranger to the proliferation of furniture on which porcelain plates complemented the marquetry in the style of the 18th century.
