Scope and Contents

Transcription: [double-headed eagle] Article No.3531 Nineteenth century mahogany cabinet in French classic style, carved and ornamented with bronze mountings. “Espagnolettes” form decorative motifs on portions of the frameworks. Gracefully proportioned, it is fitted with removable glass shelves. During the twenty years previous to the Revolution, the style of French furniture reached a high standard of artistic excellence, both in design and execution. This phase continued and produced a fine influence on the furniture of the next period, extending itself, as well, to the development of gracious furniture types in other countries. Mrs. John L.
