Lot 466

Description

A Louis XV kingwood bombe commode, third quarter 18th century, by Pierre Roussel (1723-1782), ormolu mounted, the later marble top above two short and two long drawers, raised on splayed feet, stamped 'P.Roussel' to the top of the carcass, 86cm high, 103cm wide, 64cm deep

Like many of his peers, Pierre Roussel (b. 1723) was the son of an ébéniste.  He became a maitre in 1745 and by 1767 was one of the leading furniture makers and dealers in Paris. In the late 1770's he supplied the Prince de Condé with 10,000 livres' worth of furniture, probably his largest commission.  The inventory after his sudden death in 1783 reveals a stock of almost 250 pieces, mostly in tulipwood marquetry.
