Beautiful Chest-of-Drawers attributed to G.Grohé



Charmant Louis XVI inspired « meuble d’appui » in kingwood and satinwood veneer. It opens with a drawer on the belt and two doors adorned with an elegant polychrome marquetry representing a floral vase on a diamond background. Rich ornamentation in chiseled and gilded bronze composed of a frieze of acanthus leaves on the drawer, of foliage, roses and ribbons on the mounts and laurel torus on the four toupie feet. It is surmounted by a molded Griotte marble top underlined by a gilded bronze frieze of ovals. Guillaume Grohé (1808-1885) settled down in Paris in 1827 with his brother Jean-Michel and started a company making and selling furniture and art objects, which became famous very quickly. They took part in the 1834 “Exposition des Produits de l’Industrie Française”. In 1849 he was awarded the “Légion d’honneur” and later officer. His reputation is mainly based on a style furniture specialisation. He was one of the most well-known cabinet-makers at his time, providing King Louis-Philippe, Emperor Napoleon the IIIrd and Empress Eugénie, princes and princesses, even Queen Victoria in Great-Britain after 1862. He naturally participated in many different exhibitions and was jury member in Universal Exhibitions.
