Louis XV-style chest of drawers inlaid with satin-finish violetwood and rosewood, decorated with gilded bronzes. Curved in shape, it is decorated with branch and flower marquetry in violet and rosewood, set in ormolu rocaille cartouches. The uprights are highlighted by elegant openwork falls. Important rocaille scrolled bronzes join the two drawers and form the handles. Both drawers can be closed with a key. The cambered legs end in bronze foliate sabots. The piece is topped with a white breche marble top.

Under Louis XV, bronze allowed craftsmen a great deal of imagination in their compositions by combining different rocaille motifs. They favoured decoration over form, the curve over the straight line in moving ornamentation. This omnipresence of the rocaille motif is accompanied by numerous references to nature and plants. This chest of drawers from the end of the 19th century has the same fine chasing of the bronzes under Louis XV, as well as its ornamental repertoire. Its quality can be compared to that of the productions of François Linke (1855-1946), a great Parisian cabinetmaker of the end of the 19th century who used the vocabulary of the Louis XV style while giving it great originality.
