Louis XV’s chest of drawers returns to Versailles, at least for a while.
The luxurious piece of furniture stood in the room of Louis XV at #Versailles for 35 years. Now, the royal chest of drawers is on loan from the @WallaceMuseum (London) and will return home for an exhibition about Louis XV. Yves Carlier, assistant director of the Musée national des châteaux de Versailles stated that “it is impossible for an object like this to have been designed without the king’s approval.” It is therefore a rare insight into the taste of the 18th century French monarch.

Made in 1760, the porcelain lamp and perfume burner has three parts – a square baluster-shaped pedestal section, a middle octagonal section & an openwork lid.
It is made up of eight shelves in battened wood veneered with cherrywood. Harry Bertoia, Charlotte Perriand, Alvar Aalto, Architecture Organique, Bookshelves, Bookcase, Modernist, Sarl

Created just a year before his death, it features a Mediterranean blue dotted with discs – evoking ancient warriors shields – and cartouches with the names of Greek sculptors in Greek letters.
