Commode tomb in marquetry of rosewood stamped Migeon, XVIIIth

Commode tomb in marquetry of rosewood.

Generously curved on all sides, it opens to 4 drawers on 3 rows.

The inlaid marquetry is framed in darker tones, beautiful colors and a warm rendering.

The ornamentation of rocaille bronzes is remarkable but not overloaded, it also covers the two generously curved amounts of the chest of drawers.

Capped with its marble Brocatelle with double overflow.

A room with important dimensions and accented forms as can be seen in the work of Migeon.

Stamped of Pierre Migeon and JME on the right rear pillar.

Louis XV period.

Length: 141.5 cm

Height: 90 cm

Depth: 68 cm

Pierre Migeon (1701-1758), received master about 1725 (the registers dating from the beginning of the reign of Louis XV not having been preserved) is among the greatest cabinetmakers of the eighteenth century. He delivers his furniture to a rich aristocratic clientele, in which are the Duke of Orleans, son of the Regent, Duchess de Rohan, Marshal de Noailles, Duchesse d'Epernon, Cardinal de Rohan, several bishops, ambassadors of foreign nations ... As early as the 1740s, he received orders from the Garde-Meuble de la Couronne and Les Menus-Plaisirs. He enjoys the protection of the Marquise de Pompadour, whose prodigality towards him is evoked by d'Argenson in his memoirs.

He made furniture in rosewood and amaranth veneers. Migeon's furniture stands out by what can be called a robust elegance and a pronounced taste for curves as in our dresser above which is a representative work of his work. (Source: French furniture of the 18th century, Kjellberg)
