20th Century, French Art Deco Coquille d'Oeuf Cabinet, Signed Dated 1936

This particular and unusual cabinet has, on the door at the top left, the signature “A. NICOLLE (?)" and the date 1936. The cabinet has a characteristic line of Art Deco.
In the name art deco comes from the synthesis of the wording “Exposition internationale des arts décoratifs et industriels modernes”, exhibition held in Paris in 1925. It is a phenomenon of taste that substantially affected the period between 1919 and 1930 in Europe, while in America, in particular in the USA, it lasted until 1940: it covered decorative arts, visual arts, architecture and fashion. Among the many foreign exhibitors, the Paris Expo of 1925 saw the triumph of the special French refinement in various product categories, from cabinet making to fashion accessories: Paris remained the international centre of good taste even in the critical years following the First World War.
This cabinet, made of ebonized wood, has a large front door decorated with the application of coquilles d'oeufs – meaning crushed eggshell- typical French processing of the thirties, to create a light background and material, mosaic effect. On this background stands out the decoration in gold, with animal and vegetable subjects.
The central body of the furniture is supported on two feet carved with grooves and curved that in turn rest on a parallelepiped base.
Extremely decorative, this furniture is distinguished by the refined and particular technique used. It is suitable for any ancient environment, although today it lends itself particularly to the combination with modern furniture, vintage and contemporary.
