A chic French Modernist ebonised two door sideboard from the Art Deco period, gilt bronze mounted, very much in the manner of and possibly attributable to Jacque Adnet (1900-1984).
French Art Deco – 1940.
Of superb construction and extremely well drawn, this sideboard / enfilade evokes all the characteristics of the renowned French Art Deco modernist designer, architect and interior designer Jacques Adnet. Adnet embraced modern materials with a minimalism, yet retained the principles of classic style and superb craftsmanship as can be seen in this sideboard, elegant and modern in style yet with a traditional neoclassical undertone.
The stepped top outlined by a subtle gilt bronze trim, above a pair of interlocking doors with a rectangular patinated bronze escutcheon flanked by twin pilaster terminals, headed and finished with gilt bronze moulded mounts. The interior revealing countersunk brass pin hinges with two drawers and an adjustable shelve, with the whole raised on tapered bracket feet with confirming brass mounts.
In excellent condition with original working keys, the sideboard will break down if needed for transport. The quality is similar to the Jules Leleu sideboard we also have in stock.
An identical matching four door version of this enfilade is also in stock and listed on the website.
