A substantial early 20th Century French ebonisded and chinoiserie lacquer side cabinet by Maison Jansen. Three cupboards, each with three shelves.
Stamped Jansen (top right door, see image).
The Paris based design firm was the creator of the periodﾐs most dazzling backdrops. Founded in 1880, at the height of Beaux-Arts fashion, Jansen began to garner attention at first by word of mouth among the upper class in France's Third Republic. By the turn of the 20th century, Jansenﾐs reputation was international, and the firm counted the monarchs of England, Belgium, Holland, and Spain among its clientele. And while the company finally closed the doors of its 9 rue Royale headquarters in 1989, Jansen's evolving, iconic styleﾋ a mix of 18th-century Bourbon finery, Hollywood theatrics, and English countryhouse refinementﾋremains today the subject of much emulation and desire.
