PAIR OF FRENCH LOUIS XV STYLE KINGWOOD PARQUETRY ECOIGNURES CABINETS
Late 19th Century
Item # 1404ULX14-A


Mottled cream and gray thick hand carved and finished original marble tops position on short dowels protruding from the top, this framed with neat rows of dovetails locking the golden oak top into the sides and corners of the case. A single door on each cabinet opens over original brass hinges to reveal a tidy interior with a pair of oak shelves, the front edges veneered to match the case; these shelves are easily removable, resting on original oak bars affixed in the interior with steel screws. We've removed the lock to examine it for a signature - it does not have any markings, the entire piece hand cut and hand forged from brass, the rough filing and chiseling still evident in the interior of it. The gilt bronze mounts are quite fine: the top corners overlaid with a deep and intricate rococo motif of twisted acanthus leaves, the apron hosting a sprawling display of foliage with scattered blooms of flowers, the sabots acanthus in profile and curling tightly in beautiful little toes. We've removed a single sabot and a single upper corner mount to examine for identifying markings, neither of which was impressed by the founder.

These are a wonderful selection crafted with a level of quality and attention to detail that competes with some of the best craftsmen of the Belle Epoque - they remain in lovely condition with an attractive patina preserved under later layers of wax on the mellow surfaces. Anyone passionate about fine French antiques of the nineteenth century will be positively delighted by this fine pair of antique cabinets.

Measurements: 33 3/4" high (including 1 1/8" thick marble top) x 15 1/4" depth to back corner
