Grenoble, Jean-Francois Hache assigned, around 1770
The two-bay chest of drawers veneered on oak with rosewood and rosewood shows large single panels on the side and the front, meanderingly framed and end-grain veneered.
The three fields of the front go "sans travers" over the drawers and structure the architecture of the chest of drawers like a central risalit. The original bronze fittings still have old gilding and the original marble top is presewed.
The Grenoble-born ebenist Jean-Francois Hache (1730-1796) learned in the workshop of his father Pierre and succeeded in taking over his parents' business to become one of the court suppliers to Duke Louis-Philippe d'0rléans, governor of the Dauphiné.
