We are of the belief and opinion that whilst it does not have a makers mark, that it was made by a top French maker. This Commode has IMPECCABLE PROVENANCE: It was purchased by a Scotta Godwin/Obenchain from a French Antique Auction held at the Club Room in the Stoneligh Court (Hotel), Dallas on Wednesday the 2nd April 1930. (Now The Meridian Hotel). We have the Original Auction Catalog which has remained with the Commode since it was acquired at that Auction (along with other pieces in the Calvert Hall-Obenchain Collection on our Site). The Auction was titled: " Works of Art and Furnishings of The Chateau de Turique (Nancy) and The Conde-Rougemont Home (Touraine). The cover of the Catalog also has a seal of a Coat of Arms. The first page of the Catalog States: "Exhibition on Wednesday, April 2nd And Following Days From 10 A.M. to 10 P.M......EXHIBITION at CLUB ROOM, STONELIGH COURT, DALLAS, TEXAS". The Second page gives a brief description of the Auction contents and states that " This Exhibition will be presented by M. Fernand M. Adda of Paris France" The Commode was Lot No: 394 and was described in the Auction Catalog as: "BEAUTIFUL INLAID HARE AND KINGWOOD COMMODE....XVIII CENTURY. Arched Body. Fitted with a Door. Center shaped panel, inlaid with pastoral trophy and closely placed medallions. Richly mounted in chiseled bronze moldings. Large appliques of acanthus leaves and scrollings. On cabriole feet. Solid Siense marble top. NOTE: Exceptionally beautiful proportions and workmanship." It is noted on the margin by Scotta Godwin/Obenchain that she paid the princely sum of $1,500 in 1930 for this piece. Allowing for simple inflation, this would equate to well over $22,000 today. Condition: Overall in relatively good condition. 2 cracks to the marble top but not broken. It would benefit greatly from a professional 'touch up'. Three frieze drawers fitted with two adjustable shelves and enclosed by a panel door inlaid with a panel depicting a ewer bowl and rustic trophy. less
