With its central Bacchic mask and exaggerated bombé form, these encoignures share much in common with that attributed to Jacques Dubois (maître in 1742) in the Wallace collection (F99- P. Hughes, The Wallace Collection Catalogue of Furniture, London, 1996, pp. 311-313. It is interesting to note that the foliate-wrapped chutes are characteristic of Dubois and can be seen, for instance, on the bois de bout marquetry bureau sold from the Alexander Collection, Christie's New York, 30 April 1999, lot 140.
A pair of encoignures of similar outline and with comparable angle mounts stamped by the marchand-ébéniste Adrian Faizelot Delorme is illustrated in J. Nicolay, L'Art et la Manière des Maîtres Ebénistes Français Paris, 1956, p. 141, fig. C. Another similar pair by Delorme was sold from the Lopez Tarragoya collection, Palais Galliéra, Paris, 15 June 1971, lot 103 and a commode in the Festetics Collection at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Budapest also has the same chutes.
