Nota a catalogo

From his Parisian atelier and select exhibitions, including the celebrated 1925 Exposition International des Arts Décoratif et Indutriels Modernes, Cheuret introduced his distinctive furniture and lighting dominated by abstracted and naturalistic birds.  Cheuret’s ornate furniture designs are heavily informed by his early training under sculptors Jacques Perrin and George Lemâitre.

This console, a rare owl subject by the artist, was acquired by the present family from Strawbridge’s and Clothier, a historic retail store in the heart of Philadelphia.  Founded in 1892, Strawbridge’s became a local institution that offered the most fashionable designs to Philadelphia shoppers.  Its flagship location, opened in 1931, offered a luxurious retail experience within an ornate Beaux Arts architectural masterpiece.  The original owner of the console, an employee at Strawbridge’s for decades, helped create the lavish window designs that delighted shoppers along Market Street.
