Chiffonier Secretary desk

This chiffonier secretary desk is lavishly adorned of gilt bronze, wood marquetry as well as flowers in porcelain inlays by Julien-Nicolas Rivart.

We have here a fine example of these rare decorations with a bouquet of roses and yellow daisies, on a rosewood background. It is framed by the wood marquetry covering the entire piece, a more classical design but of exceptional quality.

Porcelain marquetry of roses

This exceptional piece of furniture presents a delicate marqueted decoration of porcelain representing in a naturalist way, and a really accurate manner, beautiful roses blossoming whuile some other are sttill in buds. The inlay is contrasting with the sumptuous work of the wood.
