Pierre Denizot is one of the leaders of neoclassical cabinet making. He was the official supplier of the Comte d'Artois, younger brother of King Louis XVI. Pierre Denizot's furniture has been part of the greatest European collections and is still kept in the reference museums for 18th century French furniture: in Versailles in the Château and Trianon, in Paris in the Cognacq-Jay and Camondo museums, in Geneva at the Museum of Art and History, in London at the Victoria and Albert Museum, etc...
The chest of drawers below is in the Château de Versailles.
The Galerie Delvaille now offers a very similar chest of drawers also signed Pierre Denizot. The complete file is available on this site in the "Furniture" section.
