Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Sold Christie's New York, 10 October 2001, lot 240

    The present model is based on a console designed and created by the early 18th century sculptor Jules Degoullons for the Château de Bercy in circa 1713. Its owner, Charles-Henri II de Malon de Bercy, employed Degoullons and his collaborators to execute much of the interior decorations and furnishings. The Bercy console was acquired by Emperor Napoleon III at the auction of the contents of the château in 1860, and is now in the collections of the Louvre (inv. no. OA 5088).

    The designs of Degoullons were not only influential on the Regence style of his time, but also inspired furniture makers of the second half of the 19th century such as Francois Linke.
