Amazing Sideboard, designed in the Art Deco spirit, attributed to the famous French Designer and Cabinet Maker Jules Leleu (1883-1961).
It opens on the top and on the front by a double flap revealing a remarkable interior in Sycamore lined with original Mercury mirrors. This space is composed of a recessed concave part and two small lateral drawers, embellished with Amaranth fillets. It is also equipped with Brass Galleries, initially used as storage for glasses, and which allow us to imagine a Bar function for this unclassifiable piece of furniture.
Underneath, this sideboard is made up of two doors with movements, inlaid with Losanges in various colors on a Rio Rosewood background. Floral motifs in mother-of-pearl and various woods also decorate these doors, highlighted - just like the front flap - by two nets of Lemon tree with sinuous lines forming frames. The interior of this lower part offers a central niche and, on either side, storage units compartmentalized by shelves decorated with friezes on their visible edges.
Two strong columns narrowed towards the bottom constitute the front posts of this unusual piece of furniture. They are topped with brass rings and end with feet decorated with plates of the same alloy.
Note that the sides are slightly flared towards the back and that the bottom rail is slightly curved.
The flap, as well as the doors, lock and the piece of furniture is supplied with an additional key.
This sumptuous sideboard is both singular and perfectly in line with current trends. It has benefited from a prestigious design work and inalterable precious woods, which were the materials of choice of Jules Leleu, as an expert in the fitting out of liners in the last century.
