A Very Fine Late 19th Century Louis XVI Style Gilt Bronze, Wedgwood and Sèvres Mounted Commode A Vantaux

By J. Rablant

A white marble top above a frieze applied with scrolling-vine mounts and fronted by three drawers centered by a lion's mask and oak branches, the cupboard doors with a central Wedgwood rounded plaque of Cupid and the Vestal Virgins within a demi lune frame filled with arabesque scrolling vine, the sides with beautuful Sèvres porcelain plaques.

Signed J. Rablant to the top, right edge of the carcass under the marble top.

The design of the present commode relates closely to that of a pair adapted by Guillaume Benneman from a model by Joseph Stöckel supplied to Marie-Antoinette in 1786 for the Salon des Jeux at Fontainebleau.

Copied in widely varying degrees of quality throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the present example of Stöckel and Benneman's model exhibits the high level of execution and finish associated with the finest quality pieces.
