Footnotes

  • The present console relates in design and décor to the style often called "third rococo", particularly well represented in Paris by furniture makers such as Joseph-Emmanuel Zwiener or François Linke. In the 1880s Louis Majorelle's oeuvre is also representative of this taste as per example the giltwood suite decorated with vernis Martin he delivered for the Het Loo Palace in Apeldoorn or the bed he presented at the 1889 Paris Universal Exhibition.

    Literature:
    Camille Mestdagh, L'ameublement d'art français (1850-1900), Paris, 2010, pp.175-178.
