Catalogue Note

The work of the master cabinetmaker Guillame Grohé, and specifically the quality of his bronze mounts, was highly praised at the 1867 Paris Exposition Universelle as such: 'ses bronzes sont supérieurs à ceux de Riesener et de Gouthière'. The original model, commonly attributed to Riesener, was loaned by the Palace of Fontainebleau and is shown in a line engraving in the retrospective part of the Exposition rétrospective de l'union centrale des arts décoratifs, Paris 1882, De Champeau & Others, 'Les arts du bois,' pub. Quantin, 1883, p. 68.
