 Very Important original Italian walnut chest of drawers circa 1590 with provenance late 16th Century from the famous Dr. Albert Figdor collection

 

 


Description

"The Figdor Commode " late 16th early 17th Century . This genuine walnut chest of 3 drawers comes from the well-documented collection of Dr. Albert Figdor. The well carved paw feet supports a solid walnut chest with three ornate acanthus carved front walnut drawers. Walnut was a luxury timber in Europe at this time until  18th century shipping made it possible to import mahogany logs from the Americas.

The fine workmanship and excellent original condition retaining its original Patina are all value points that Dr. Figdor built his famous collection around. The lift top document space retains its original hand forged hinges and lock.  A working key is also supplied

 

Dr. Figdor was an influential international banker based in Vienna during the turn of the 1900's. He established a vast collection of early European antiques dating from the 15th century up to the 18th century. His intention was to bequeath his collection to the city of Vienna, in order to establish a core collection for the newly built Vienna Applied Arts Museum. Although there appears some confusion as to why the necessary paperwork was never processed, the collection was dispursed by three public auction, plus addenda, in Berlin in 1930. Period catalogues of the time are highly sought after reference material as they provide not only descriptions but also photos of most items.

This chest still retains its original auction warehouse house label. With such excellent provenance (another value point) the rarity of any Figdor collection pieces reaching the market is impossibly scarce and provides an excellent investment opportunity.

This commode was purchased was purchased at the original auction of the collection in 1930, by an very influential family residing in Canberra, Australia, and has been in their possession until now.

We are very proud to be able to offer this fine piece of 400 year old history to the connoisseur.

  Important original walnut chest with Provenance , Italian late 16th Century from the Figdor collection

 

Dimensions
H 101cm

W 128cm

D59 cm


Description

"The Figdor Commode " late 16th early 17th Century . This genuine walnut chest of drawers comes from the well-documented collection of Dr. Albert Figdor. The well carved paw feet supports a solid walnut carcase with three carved front walnut drawers. Walnut was a luxury timber at this time until shipping made it possible to import Mahogany logs. The fine workmanship and excellent original condition retaining its original Patina are all value points that Dr. Figdor built his famous collection around. The lift top document space retains its original hand forged hinges and lock.

 

Dr. Figdor was an influential international banker based in Vienna during the turn of the 1900's. He established a vast collection of early European antiques dating from the 15th century up to the 18th century. His intention was to bequeath his collection to the city of Vienna, in order to establish a core collection for the newly built Vienna Applied Arts Museum. Although there appears some confusion as to why the necessary paperwork was never processed, the collection was dispursed by three public auction, plus addenda, in Berlin in 1930. Period catalogues of the time are highly sought after reference material as they provide not only descriptions but also photos of most items. This chest still retains its original auction warehouse house label. With such excellent provenance (another value point) the rarity of any Figdor collection pieces reaching the market is impossibly scarce and provides an excellent investment opportunity. This commode was purchased was purchased at the original auction of the collection in 1930, by an very influential family now residing in Canberra, Australia, and has been in their possession until now. We are very proud to be able to offer this fine piece of 400 year old history to the connoisseur. Inspection is available.
