French Art Deco Macassar Buffet attributed to Jules Leleu

French Art Deco Macassar Buffet attributed to Jules Leleu

 

 

At Jean-Marc Fray, we are passionate about antiques, curating only the best pieces with the highest level of craftmanship and decorative impact.  This spectacular Art Deco buffet is attributed to the iconic French furniture maker, Jules Leleu. In his day, Leleu designed the Grand Salon of the Ambassadors at the Society of Nations in Geneva and the French Embassies of several nations as well as the luxury ocean liners SS Ile de France and SS Normandie. This piece, unsigned, displays not only a skilled craftsmanship, but also his knowledge of the aesthetics of the Art Deco period. Built with stunning Macassar and burled elm, grand with lemonwood and mother-of-pearl floral inlay and giltbrass trim.
