This small Japanese unit is a work made of tainted sycamore in the 1880's in the taste of Gabriel Viardot (1830-1904), important Parisian furniture maker specilized in the Japanese furniture.
Our furniture is composed of a first higher unit with a glazed door and a small dresser opening by a door, surmounted by a small shelf. All our furniture is adorned with motifs in relief inspired by the Asian iconography, such as dargon, poppy flowers, a hanging vase or even decorative elements in frieze. We also find mother of pearl inlays bringing light to the furniture thanks to the contrast and also forming friezes of flowers. Our furniture rests on typical feet and is surmounted by a pediment inspired by the pagoda roof. The sides receive a carved decor depicting bamboo branches and clouds.
