Overall in very good condition. The surfaces of the sideboard have possibly been cleaned and have a later finish applied. The result is a wonderful finish that highlights the saturated figuring of the wood selection and showing very shallow surface scratches and edge nicks. The back proper right corner with a minor old loss, which appears to have been restored to minimize its appearance. With a few areas of adhesive residue to the top of the case. The top of the sideboard is fitted with a later glass panel to protect the top. The front of the doors are fitted with twelve variant gilt panels in wonderfully stylized animal and figural motifs. The small scale plaques add great depth to the overall design. The feet of the sideboard with minor edge losses and lifting to the veneer. The proper right front foot with an area of loss to the veneer measuring a ½ inch in length which is visible in the catalogue illustration. The interior compartment of the sideboard are fitted with a light oak interior and are currently lacking shelves. With one key. A wonderfully portioned large scale sideboard showing the signature attention to the intricate details that characterizes the work of Dominique.
