Fantastic Late 19th Century Gilt Bronze and Parquetry Commode by Zwiener Jansen

$95,00021% Off


A fantastic late 19th century gilt bronze-mounted Louis XVI style parquetry commode By Zwiener Jansen Successeur A marble top above a frieze set with three drawers with pierced laurel decoration, over three garland-hung parquetry cupboard doors each with shelves, the sides similarly decorated, on toupie feet. The bronze mounts stamped to the reverse ‘’ZJ’ for Zwiener / Jansen Successeur. The Lockplates stamped MON THEAU/THIEFFINE SUCCR/SERRURIER/PARIS. After the very famous 18th century model by Martin Carlin. Zwiener Jansen Successeur was part of the celebrated firm of Maison Jansen which was founded in Paris in 1880 by Jean-Henri Jansen, circa 1895-1900 Jansen bought some of the master models of the celebrated furniture maker Joseph-Emmanuel Zwiener, who had left Paris to return to Germany, and renamed the business 'Zwiener Jansen Successeur'. Zwiener furniture has become very sought after, as it has many similarities and qualities to the likes of Francois Linke. Martin Carlin (ca 1730 – 1785) was a Parisian ébéniste, born at Freiburg, who was received master at Paris in 1766. Carlin worked at first in the shop of Jean-François Oeben, whose sister he married. He set up independently in the Faubourg Saint-Antoine, an unfashionable quarter of Paris, where few of his wealthy clientele would have penetrated. Carlin sold his works exclusively to marchands-merciers such as Simon-Philippe Poirier and his partner Dominique Daguerre, who acted as decorator-designers. It was only through these entrepreneurs that Carlin could acquire the Sèvres porcelain plaques that decorate many of his pieces. His earliest such pieces are datable by the marks on their porcelain to 1766; they followed designs supplied by the dealer Poirier. Although Martin Carlin made some larger pieces— secrétaires à abattant (drop-front secretary desks), tables, and commodes— he is best known for refined small furnishings in neoclassical taste, some of them veneered with cut up panels of Chinese lacquer, which he would also have received from the hands of the marchands-merciers.
