A Beautiful and Unique Late 19th Century Louis XVI Style Gilt Bronze Mounted Inlaid Marquetry Commode

By Paul Sormani

Marble top above an Inlaid freize drawer over two long drawers, flanked by two side cabinet doors, very fine marquetry inlay designs depicting figures and classical scenes.

The top of the carcass stamped twice "SORMANI Paris", the lockplate engraved "P. Sormani Paris 10 R. Charlot".

Paul Sormani (1817-1877), was born in Venice in 1817, and was a maker of fine 'meubles de luxe'. His work was described in the catalogue of the 1867 Exposition Universelle as: 'toute sa production révèle une qualité d'exécution de tout premier ordre'.

Sormani exhibited in Paris in 1849, 1855, 1862, 1867, 1878 and 1900, and in London in 1862, winning numerous medals. Amongst the items Sormani exhibited at the 1900 Exposition Universelle were a Louis XV style bureau and a Louis XVI style commode both based on originals held in the Jones Collection at the South Kensington Museum.
