This cabinet is a beautiful piece of late 19th Century French design. The piece is stamped with the name of ‘G. Durand’ — that is, Gervais-Maximilien-Eugene Durand, the acclaimed cabinetmaker who founded the award-winning ‘Maison Durand’ in Paris. Durand became famous in France for his 19th Century revival style furniture, which was heavily influenced by 18th Century works by Adam Weisweiler and Jean-Henri Riesener, amongst others.

Due to the cabinet’s design as a corner piece, the item is triangular in shape. The cabinet is set on three feet, the front two of which are fitted with gilt bronze, curling foliate mounts. A thin band of gilt bronze extends upwards, along the edge of attached cabriole legs, to meet another set of mounts. These are gilt bronze, and similarly scrolling and floral in character.

Between the cabinet legs, the body is fitted with two doors, which open onto a capacious, single cell space. These doors are shaped so that they have a curved apron, and they are decorated with a large, central marquetry design. For this, various types of wood have been used to create rose heads, which grow on swirling stems from a bed of leafy forms. This design is enclosed within a foliate gilt bronze border. The cabinet is finished with a fine shaped, flecked orange-coloured marble top, which mirrors the shape of the case below.

Due to its refined style and timeless beauty, this marquetry cabinet will make a delightful addition to an interior, either antique or contemporary in its style.
