This elegant two drawer commode is made using panels from lacquer supplied during the Kang-Xi dynasty (1662-1722). The scenes are romantic landscapes possibly showing scenes surrounding the ancient Chinese capital of Hangzhou. The gilt bronze mounts and breche violet marble top are original.
Jacques Dubois was born near Pontoise, France on 7th April 1694. He was appointed Master in 1742 having come to be an ebeniste later on in life. He was not known to have produced furniture for the Royal Court but his list of clients included Louis XV's daughter Elizabeth, Duchess of Palma. He is still considered one of the most important designers of this period and his work can be seen at the Getty Museum, Victoria & Albert museum, the Frick collection and the Musee de Louvre.
