Pair of Jacob French Empire tall flame mahogany marble-topped pedestal Cabinets, an opposing pair with dust proof doors opening to adjustable shelves, the frieze with a single drawer ormolu mounts and original locks and keys.

stamped "Jacob", François Honoré Georges Jacob-Desmalter usesd this stamp from 1813-1825.
Condition report: The white flecked rectangular marble tops with rounded front and backs are old (probably over 100 years) however are most likely not original, the apron under the marble is curved at the corners which reflects in the shape of the top however we would have thought the back of the marble would have straight as opposed to rounded. The drawer runners are restored consistent with age, original double locks and keys throughout, veneers on sub plinth to both cabinets have minor restorations consistent with age, internal baseboard to both plinths renewed (acceptable considering age). These cabinets were restored in Paris to top showroom condition post the Sothebys Sale 2010 and overall they remain in very fine condition.
Provenance: Sothebys Important French Furniture, sculptures and works of art, 9 November 2010.
