Madame Adélaïde

Gilles Joubert delivered this commode for Madame Adélaïde in 1770 who had it transported to the Château de Bellevue which in itself had been a present from her father. Joubert was 74 years old when he made it and at that time he had been cabinet maker to the King since 1748.
Ivory, bronze and marble makes up the parts of the commode that is not out of wood. Versailles bought back the commode in 2007 for 350.000 euros.
