This beautiful carved walnut Neo-Renaissance style dresser, made in 1880, features a refined decor of high-relief characters. On the upper part, the central panel presents a Troubadour style scene; a musician addresses a monk, probably to ask him for a few coins in exchange for a song. A character observes the scene from his balcony with Gothic ornaments. We should also point out the two knights depicted in very high relief as atlants that decorate each corners of lower part of the dresser. They support a carved entablature with a frieze of acanthus leaves. The other panels represent the characteristic decoration of the Neo-Renaissance style , also known as the Henri II style , they take the forms of the Second French Renaissance: grotesques and acanthus leaves. The fluted columns and the balusters reinforce the verticality of the piece of furniture and give the whole a great elegance.

This dresser is directly in line with the Neo-Renaissance style which was born in France during the reign of Louis-Philippe. The aristocracy and the high bourgeoisie of the time order these sumptuous objects to decorate their castles or private mansions. The Romantic movements also contributed to the diffusion and the taste for this style which, after its peak in the Second Empire, declined at the beginning of the 20th century.
