After Riesener, Jean Henri (French, 1735-1806)
This impressive commode is notable for its expanse of wooden marquetry, the fine execution of which is evidenced by the high level of detail depicted.
After the important model by Jean-Henri Riesener (French, 1734-1806), a French ebensiste of the highest calibre, which is currently housed in the Chateau de Fontainebleau, France, this beautiful cabinet reproduces all the grandeur and quality of the original, and makes a decorative piece of exceptional quality, as demonstrated most notably by the outstanding marquetry decoration on the expansive front panel.
It features a white marble top, set above upper front drawers. It bears a lower door opening, which features curved sides, and which are richly decorated with geometric designs to the wood. The large central marquetry front, the beautiful highlight of the work depicts vases, baskets, flowers, fruit and leaves. The piece is mounted throughout with extensive and radiant ormolu decoration, with beautifully bright bronze, complemented by the warm veneer and finish of the wooden frame.
