Maison des Bambous Alfred PERRET and Ernest VIBERT - Large Japanese-style cupboard and its mirror with dragons

Width: 94'' ½  240cm
Height: 118'' ⅛  300cm
Depth: 28'' ⅜  72cm

France, 19th century

Good condition

This large cupboard and its mirror were made in the 19th century by the Maison des Bambous by Perret and Vibert. In its upper part, a mirror animated by an impressive dragon, decorated with cherry branches and on each side two smaller dragons, forming a lamp and supporting a tablet. In the middle part, three drawers engraved and decorated with mother-of-pearl inlay. In its lower part, this piece of furniture opens with three doors decorated with birds, flowers inlaid with mother-of-pearl and on two of them, a carved dragon.

Established in 1879 by Alfred Perret and Ernest Vibert at 30 rue du Quatre-Septembre in Paris, the Maison des Bambous specializes, from 1886, in the realization of Chinese-inspired furniture, drawing from the Far Eastern decorative repertoire , thus adorning furniture with dragons. This furniture is therefore quite representative of this production and the taste then in vogue for the exoticism.
