Example text

32. Une commode de quatre pieds, marbre Breche violette, les bronzes représentant deux enfans qui râpent du tabac, au milieu est un singe qui se poudre de tabac, dorés d'or moulu. That this commode was still in his possession some ten years after its construction indicates that it did not sell. Indeed, Cressent made no other commode exactly like it, whereas a number of his commodes duplicate each other. It is interesting to note that Mr. Getty bought this commode in 1938 for only $5,000. It was one of the first pieces of French furniture that he acquired.

In the center is a basket of flowers, surrounded by garlands of other flowers suspended from a trellis and twining through and around interlacing strapwork. At the four corners are a lion, a swan, a dove, and a salamander representing the four elements: Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. A very similar table appears in a painting of Madame de Pompadour by François Guérin. As she is shown with her daughter, Alexandrine, who died in 1754, it must have been painted before that date. Madame de Pompadour was a patron of Oeben, and the table in the painting could be the museum's table or a closely similar one in the Musée du Louvre.

The lounging females are half-human and half-animal, with large hairy legs and paws; paws also replace their hands. One holds a cat and the other, a monkey. They were made by Charles Cressent (1685-1768), the great bronzier and cabinetmaker who was patronized by the duc d'Orléans. He was trained as a sculptor in the Académie de Saint Luc, and, contrary to the strict guild regulations of Paris, he had a forge and gilders in his workshop. He designed and produced his own gilt bronzes — fire dogs such as these, clocks, and mounts for his furniture.
