Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This chest follows the European tradition of incorporating Chinese Export lacquer panels within furniture making. This piece is made in the Transitional manner which stylistically breached the gap between rococo and neo-classical design. The shaped top, front and legs all correspond with Louis XV rocaille forms, while the medallion handles and classical lock escutcheons welcome in the Louis XVI era in furniture design history.
