Splendor of Art Nouveau furniture
An extraordinary walnut show-case (250 cm x 130 cm x 46 cm). This pure french style Art Nouveau furniture was designed and manufactured around 1900, probably by Louis-Desire-Eugene Gaillard.
Gaillard was a french architect and cabinet maker. Alongside with Gallé and Majorelle, in France, and Victor Horta in Belgium, he was considered as one of the theoriticians of the Art Nouveau style which he explained and illustrated in his book, l’Art du Mobilier, in 1906.
Eugene Gaillard became famous following his successful participation as a designer in the International Exhibition in Paris, in 1900.
