Igra Lignum Antiquités

Pierre I Roussel (Paris, 1723-1782)
Commode sauteuse without crossbar from Rambouillet and Châteauneuf
Veneer of rosewood, satinwood and violet wood
France, Louis XV period

Stamped by Pierre I Roussel and marked with the ownership mark of the castle of Châteauneuf-sur-Loire of Louis Jean Marie de Bourbon, Duke of Penthièvre (grandson of Louis XIV and grandfather of Louis-Philippe). Louis XV period.
Our latest research tends to confirm that this magnificent chest of drawers was used to furnish the Château de Rambouillet before being moved to Châteauneuf-sur-Loire, as claimed by Mr. Quéré and Mr. Serette in 2011.
