18th Century Louis XVI Bois de Rose Secretaire Roger Vandercruse Lacroix, 1780s



Precious French Secretaire, Louis XVI era, purple ebony- bois de rose veneer, made by RVLC, Roger Vandercruse dit Lacroix (19 November 1727 - 19 May 1799). We are facing a piece of furniture of incredible beauty and rare workmanship, like all the furniture made by Lacroix, who became a Cabinetmaker from 1755. His furniture is all works of art, it is enough to dwell on the design made with ebony wood, they seem flowers that fill the entire surface and also the bronzes of excellent workmanship that accompany the whole contour. The furniture is signed on the inside of the secretaire, on the left upright. The base rests on 12 columns, which are very elegant but extremely delicate. Who wants a unique piece of furniture has found it. For more information on this illustrious Cabinetmaker (among the most important of the French period), you can consult the book "Le Mobilier Français du XVIII Siècle" by Pierre Kjellberg. (pag. 749-766).
