American Neo-Grec Marquetry-Inlaid and Bronze-Mounted Rosewood Cabinet
Attributed to Pottier & Stymus New York, ca. 1869-1870 The top centered by a raised plinth with incised lambrequins beneath the top, the case with an inlaid frieze over a door with an inlaid panel centered by a masque of a mythological personage, the concave sides with bronze plaques, the fluted pilasters with gilt decor, the verso numbered “3332” and with the letters presumably for the party that commissione the piece “H.K.O.” D: 22”, W: 61”, H: 52.75” Pottier and Stymus employed a consecutive numbering system on their pieces starting about 1860. The number on this piece suggests origins around 1869-1870. In 1860, the U.S. Treasury Department also purchased a suite of Renaissance Revival furniture from Pottier and Stymus.
