Salonschrank Frankreich 02

Pair of French Louis XV Salon Cabinets

around 1760/70

Extreme­ly rare pair of small salon or half-cab­i­nets exe­cut­ed in rose­wood veneer on hard­wood. The small, rec­tan­gu­lar cab­i­net body stands on a skill­ful­ly curved base with round­ed cor­ners and small, swept legs.

The fur­ni­ture body fea­tures a door with quadru­ple-sealed veneer and a frieze with sur­round­ing string inlay.
The top draw­er above, which tapers upwards like the side walls, is also exe­cut­ed with a frieze and sur­round­ing string inlay.
Both the fronts and the side walls are framed with cor­re­spond­ing skill­ful­ly curved car­touch­es and string inlays.

The two han­dles of the draw­ers, the lock fit­ting, and the sabots are made of fine gild­ed bronze fit­tings. The inte­ri­or is equipped with two adjustable shelves each. The upper fin­ish con­sists of small mould­ed and slight­ly curved mar­ble plates made of French Sar­ran­col­in mar­ble.
The beige back­ground of the mar­ble plates is tra­versed by fine veins in pink, red, and gray tones.

An absolute­ly rare and del­i­cate­ly craft­ed pair of salon cab­i­nets that will cer­tain­ly not be found very often in the art market.
