A Very Fine Ebonised and Gilt-Bronze Mounted ‘Boulle’ Petit Armoire by Joseph Cremer. The Armoire is of rectilinear form with a shaped cornice beneath a marble top. The cabinet has a pair of doors to the front with finely inlaid Boulle strapwork cartouches of scrolling and fronded acanthus punctuated by neo-classical ewers and dragonflies. The cabinet is embellished with finely cast gilt-bronze mounts to the corners and an acanthus frieze above the doors. It is raised on four gilt-bronze toupie feet.

This exceptional cabinet is typical of the high quality of brass inlay work that was carried out following the early Eighteenth Century style in the Louis XIV taste by ébénistes such as Cremer and Befort Jeune. A similar cabinet to the present example also stamped by Cremer is illustrated by Ledoux-Lebard.
