Paar seltene Louis-XVI-Eckschränke/Encoignuren in der Art des Daniel Deloose (Meister ab 1767), Frankreich, ca. 1170
An exceptional pair of corner cabinets or encoignures each with a marquetry top above canted corners simulating fluting, the panelled door with flowers in a vase made of precious woods i.e. burl ash, walnut, fruit woods, with pyrogravure and fruitwood stringing, opening to reveal one shelf, on bracket feet. Daniel Deloose, or de Loose, was an ébèniste of Flemish origin who received his maitrise in 1767, thanks to a special royal edict. He worked mainly in the Transitional and Louis XVI style, both with geometric parquetry and landscape marquetry. His designs often comprise a marquetry top instead of a marble top as it was generally expected of French case cabinets. He died in 1788.
