Jules Leleu Art Deco Palisandre Tall Cabinet with Mother of Pearl Inlay


From a Paris estate, this circa 1940s tall palisandre French cabinet with extensive wood and mother of pearl inlay is attributed to Jule Leleu. Unusual to find a Leleu cabinet in this size and configuration. This piece features a set in shelf at the top with a mirrored back and sides over three drawers and a cabinet at the bottom with two hinged doors. The sides are decorated with fine inlay work in contrasting woods and mother of pearl with a motif of trees, birds and squirrels. The lower cabinet doors feature decorative marquetry in a geometric pattern. Curvy carved feet at the base and polished nickel hardware. Stunning piece with an expertly restored finish.
