Maitre Marchand French Louis XV Ormolu Kingwood Chest / Commode with Provenance
French Louis XV walnut commode, circa 1725-1730, beautifully kingwood veneered, stamped by Maitre Nicolas-Jean Marchand with a "Regence" feel, in the extraordinary original condition as its provenance is the "Chateau de Lauroy" in Clémont (Le Cher) near the historical city of Bourges where it has always belonged to the same family. The original marble-top also is stamped. Nicolas-Jean Marchand (1697-after 1755), who had his workshop in Paris rue Saint-Nicolas, came from a bronzesmith family and specialized in museum quality furniture, in fact, several of his pieces can be admired in the Parisian library - Rue de Sully- and in the "Carnavalet" Museum. On display at our NYDC Showroom.
