Object Description

Inlaid stone and gilt bronze mounted ebonised wood sideboard
French, late 19th Century
Height 114cm, width 178cm, depth 49cm

This beautiful sideboard is wrought from ebonised wood and adorned with an eclectic variety of decorative forms, such as gilt bronze mounts, inlaid hardstone, and marquetry of brass and tortoiseshell.

The ebonised wood body of the sideboard features a central cabinet and twin flanking glazed cabinets, each of curved form. The door of the central cabinet is set to the centre with a floral bouquet composed of hardstone inlays—the process known as pietra dura. Each of the four corners of the door are adorned with cartouches containing marquetry of tortoiseshell and brass—in a manner after Boulle. The door, like much of the cabinet, is set with fine gilt bronze mounts.

The glazed doors to each side open to two velvet lined shelves. The sideboard is raised by gilt bronze mounted toupie feet, and its apron frieze is set with fine geometrical gilt bronze mounts.
