"Jb Galet - Louis XV Period Marquetry Commode, Stamped"
Jumping chest of drawers in rosewood veneer, amaranth and gilded bronze, Louis XV period around 1760. Beautiful garnishing of finely chiseled rococo bronzes, marble molded in rancid corbin beak with fine veining. Our dresser opens with 3 drawers, those at the top seem to make only one large. Very elegant, its proportions are perfect, without any fault in taste. It is a beautiful model. Unsurprisingly, it bears the stamp of a good Parisian cabinetmaker Jean Baptiste Galet as well as the JME jurande hallmark. Jean Baptiste Galet, master cabinetmaker in Paris in 1754 and died in 1784, left a very neat production of Louis XV, Transition and Louis XVI furniture. Cabinetmaker, he also ran a furniture store on rue du Faubourg Saint Antoine. He quickly acquired great notoriety and was mentioned, towards the end of the reign of Louis XV, as one of the main cabinetmakers in Paris. In addition to its aesthetic qualities, our chest of drawers benefits from a very documented provenance: A label inside the drawer goes back to the possession of the chest of drawers over 6 generations and 4 castles, transmitted by descent from the Lyautey and Ménans families (Montrambert castle in the Jura), Loisy d'Arcelot (Arcelot castle in Côte d'Or), Salverte (Rouvre castle in Côte d'or then Ray in Haute Saone for the next generation). NB1: the table above the dresser on the last photo has the same origin (Chateau de Ray). NB2: the marble below bears a mark of Chateau M (probably for Montrambert) Our beautiful chest of drawers is in excellent condition. It was restored by our cabinetmaker without any concession of quality with a real varnish with a traditional pad. There are no accidents to report. Height: 85cm Depth: 63.5cm Width: 129cm
