A Fine Louis XVI Style Carved Beech Side Cabinet with a Vert de Mer Marble Top, by Maison Grimard.
This impressive side cabinet has a shaped marble top above a frieze with three drawers and corresponding cupboards below. The lattice carved cupboard doors are embellished with floral and fruiting garlands and the central door features a garland supporting a playful putti figure. The cupboard doors are framed by spiral turned uprights and the concave sides of the cabinet are decorated with panels of trellis carving. The cabinet is raised on finely cast gilt bronze spiral twist feet.
Stamped to the carcass 'G.G' and 'G.Grimard'.
G. Grimard is recorded to have produced fine ‘Meubles d’Art’, from premises at 5 rue de Charonne, Paris, in the second half of the nineteenth century.
Grimard exhibited at many of the major international exhibitions of the period with great distinction. His work is comparatively rare but always of the very highest quality. Much of his recorded work is in the Louis XVI and neo-classical style often incorporating vernis martin panels.
