The two side parts open with five drawers surrounded by ebony moldings. The central tympanum is crowned by a gallery of gilded bronze balusters enriched with acanthus friezes and pewter scrolls in ebony backgrounds. It is bordered by four threaded tin pilasters with Corinthian capitals and bases which rest on bases decorated with large acanthus. The gilt bronze keyholes are similar to those illustrated in PIERRE GOLE, Cabinetmaker of Louis XIV. Th.h.Lunsingh Scheurleer. Editions FATON, pages 125 and 194.

This craftsman distinguished himself in the manufacture of luxury seats with works of noble character and very brilliant execution. The Mobilier national preserves from him a large shepherdess, from the time of Louis XVI, offering scrolled armrest consoles, of an unusual model. Other specimens of his work were part of the collection of the Vicomte de Froissard-Brossia dispersed in 1919, and of the former furnishings of Madame la Duchesse d’Avaray at the Château de Mareil-le-Guyon. One of his most admirable creations is an alcove sofa, richly carved and gilded, which obtained a bid of 56,500 francs at the Jacques Doucet sale in May 1912, and which has since appeared in the A. Sussmann collection.
