19C French Empire Style Complete Bedroom Set - Outstanding

$ 120,000
  • Description
    Highly, important and unique French Empire style bedroom set or suite, in the manner and style of Francois Linke, from circa 1880.
    Not marked for the maker, but under the marble top on the commode there are 2 names written in pencil: (1) M. Le Youters (?) and (2) M. Daneels.
    You will not find another complete suite like this anywhere.
    The suite includes: European king-size bed.
    Two matching bedside lockers with original white marble tops.
    Matching large wall armoire/wardrobe with original mirrors.
    Matching wall/dressing mirror.
    Matching commode with original marble top.
    The suite is almost completely original, save the bed which was originally twin size, but professionally commissioned to be customized and converted into a king-size for modern practicality. The quality of the conversion matches the quality of the suite.

    All pieces have ormolu gilt mounted fittings; beautiful patina, beautiful parquetry; simply stunning !

    About 10 years ago, I saw the 'identical twin' of the commode in an Antique Store on Central Park in New York, however it had a less desirable green marble top (IMHO), and they were looking for 30k USD for the dressing table on its own!

    This suite/set is so good that it is the main exhibit in our rear showroom.
