This Louis XV-Louis XVI Transition style commode, crafted of intricate parquetry veneer, displays the mastery of the famous 19th and 20th century maître ébéniste Mercier Frères.

Literature
Mercier Frères (1828-1985) was a furniture and tapestry making firm founded in 1828 by Claude (or André) Mercier, at 100 rue du faubourg Saint-Antoine in Paris. In 1867, the firm took the name "Mercier Frères". Known for his superior high-quality craftsmanship, the firm made furniture mostly in the 18th century Louis XV and Louis XVI styles, but by the early 20th century Mercier Freres also experimented with the Art nouveau et Art Deco styles. The firm participated in most of the major exhibitions of the late 19th century, and counted Spanish and Iranian royalty among its clientele.
