THIS IS THE CREAM OF THE CROP WHEN IT COMES TO HAND MADE FURNITURE IN THE LOUIS XV STYLE. THIS PC. WAS HAND CRAFTED BY THE RENOUN CABINET MAKER PALA MOBILI OF ITALY. MADE JUST LIKE THE ORIGINAL THAT IS IN THE WALLACE MUSEUM IN LONDON, ENGLAND.[[[SEE THE COMPLETE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ANTIQUES BY HAWTHORN BOOKS INC. PUBLISHERS N.Y. EDITOR L.G.G. RAMSEY, F.S.A. 3RD.PRINT 1968 ON PAGE 390 PLATE 134 IT SAYS CHEST OF DRAWERS [COMMODE] BY CHARLES CRESSENT. IT SEEMS PROBABLE THAT CRESSENT HIMSELF ALSO EXECUTED THE MOUNTS. WALLACE COLLECTION, LONDON.[ THE ORIGINAL WAS MADE IN 1735 BY CHARLES CRESSENT HE WENT TO PRISON AND HAD TO PAY A FINE BECAUSE HE MADE THE MOUNTS , AND THE REASON, BECAUSE HE DID NOT BELONG TO THE GILD, AND HE WAS MAKING THE PC.
