"Pierre Flechy - Louis XV Period Commode In Violet Wood - Stamped"
Regency Commode, Louis XV Period. Violet wood veneer and rosewood fillets, regency style bronze trim, thick pink marble. It opens with 4 drawers, 2 large and 2 small at the top. Our Regency style chest of drawers dates from the beginning of the Louis XV era: its shape and the type of veneer in violet wood is still very Regency. Parisian production of the years 1740-50, it bears the stamps of Pierre Flechy with the punch of Jurande as well as another stamp which seems to be that of Nicolas Jean Marchand. One of the two cabinetmakers made the dresser (probably Flechy's youth work) and the other marketed it (Marchand). Nicolas Jean Marchand, (Born around 1697 and received master around 1730 held his studio on rue Saint-Nicolas until around 1760. He was by marriage the brother in law of RVLC whose two sisters had married Jean-François and Simon Oeben. His furniture belongs to Louis XV style. He was one of the King's suppliers and supplied the court through Gilles Joubert, the King's cabinetmaker. A very fine Marchand chest of drawers is kept at the Carnavalet museum. Marchand's productions are characterized by elegance and a sure line which prove his undeniable talent Pierre Fléchy (1715-1769) - cabinetmaker - Master in 1756. He installed his workshop rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine where he worked first as a privileged craftsman then as Master Cabinetmaker from 1756. His furniture of good quality and good taste was very appreciated in trade.Excellent condition, our chest of drawers has been fully restored by our cabinetmaker, varnished in tem pon refurbished, original marble broken and (well) repaired, old bronzes, some of which are reported.
