This large Louis XV style carved walnut wardrobe with Japanese-style decorative painting in relief was realized in the late 19th century.

The 19th century is known as the century of “eclecticism” in decorative arts, during which artistic styles from past centuries were rediscovered and mixed together, and the time when non-European arts were truly discovered, which led to artistic movements such as Orientalism and Japonism. This wardrobe was inspired by both of these trends, firstly by its typically Louis XV style shape, tall and thin with the top part curved towards the center, and a lot of rounded shapes, curves and counter-curves, emblematic of the “rococo” period. The wardrobe is also decorated with a magnificent Japanese-style painting that brings back the exoticism from the Louis XV period, the time when “chinoiseries” and leafy designs were popular in interior decoration, as well as the wonder that Westerners showed for their fantasized version of the Far-East in the 1800's.

The decor painted in relief on the doors of the cabinet has a Japanese character sitting on a tree branch. He wants to give a Geisha the bird's nest that he has just caught in the tree.
Bows of ribbon and flower baskets are carved in low relief on the bottom of the cabinet and are inspired by the Louis XVI style. An important decor woth foliages motifs, scrolls and shells adorns all parts of this walnut cabinet.
