A Pair of Cabinets in the Louis XVI Manner
By Maison Millet of Paris
The pair of demi lune cabinets constructed from bois noirci, rising from tapering toupie feet, the curved front inset with fine imported Japanese lacquer panels and flanking blind panels with conforming stiff-leaf ormolu moulding, the Portor marble tops of slight overhang supported by four fluted Corinthian columns dressed with fine gilt bronze capitals. One of the mounts incised “M. B.” to the back referring to Blaise Millet, the founder of Maison Millet.
French, circa 1875
