Louis XV Chinoiserie Marquetry Commode Mid 18th C

Description: Important Louis XV Style Chinoiserie Inlaid Oval Commode, Circa 1750, most likely Vienna; featuring a shaped oval marble top over the cabinet which is finished in the round; with two drawers flanked with a pair of cabinet doors, applied rocaille ormolu mounts and raised on cabriole legs ending with sabots. Note: This is one of a pair of commodes- The matching commode sits in the Schoenbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria in the Yellow Salon. According to the Schoenbrunn: 'The Yellow Salon marks the start of the apartments which overlook the gardens of the palace. This room was once the bedroom of Emperor Francis Stephen and Maria Theresa in the early years of their marriage until 1747. Later it was occupied by the EmperorĀ“s sister, Charlotte of Lorraine, and it is mentioned as having been used by Emperor Franz I as his study. The furniture dating to around 1770 displays the old forms of the Rococo as well as neo-Classical elements. Since Maria Theresa either had everyday items of furniture auctioned off when they were no longer needed or gave them to court servants...' As you might recall, Maria Theresa's youngest daughter was Marie Antoinette. Provenance: Rare Art Inc, NYC 1976.

Condition: is good overall, with restoration as expected.
