A Good Chinoiserie Commode In the Louis XV Manner by Mais



Constructed in kingwood, with fine ormolu mounts; of serpentine form, rising from ormolu sabot shod swept bracket feet, the double doors housing Seventeenth century Chinese incised and polychromed lacquer panels depicting court scenes within a stiff leaf ormolu border, and enclosing a shelved interior; female ormolu espagnolettes to the stiles, with a Breche d’Alep thumbnail moulded platform; one mounted cast with the initials, ‘J.J.’, for Maison Jansen.
Maison Jansen, a Parisian firm that specialised in interior decoration, was founded by Jean-Henri Jansen in 1880. By the early 1890s Maison Jansen had established its own manufacturing capacity producing furniture in the manner of the ancient regime, and later, followed the styles of the 20th Century.
