Louis XV Style Kidney Shaped Ormolu-Mounted Dressing Table by Sormani

About

Finely inlaid marquetry with various precious woods, the hinged top with mirror to interior, stamped 'P. Sormani 10 RUE CHARLOT PARIS' Born in the Kingdom of Lombardy, Venice, in 1817, Paul Sormani moved to Paris and produced standard and fantasy furniture, described by himself as ‘meubles de luxe’. Operating from his large premises at 114, rue du Temple and, from 1867, at 10, rue Charlot, he specialised in reproducing styles of the Louis XV and XVI eras and his work was thought to reveal ‘une qualité d'exécution de tout premier ordre’ (a quality of execution of the first order). His creations were frequently exhibited and rewarded at the major international exhibitions of the 1860s and 1970s. On his death in 1877, the firm was taken over by his widow, Ursule-Marie-Philippine Bouvaist, who, known as 'Veuve Sormani' was joined and later succeeded by her son.
