Made  in America in the  1940's or 1950's this Dresser is  a mixture of Art Deco  , Asian  design and Greek motive very much in the taste of Mont .I found a  lot of reference online pointing to  JamesMont .The shagreen  lining  indicate a good provenance  , it is already modern but with art deco touch  with its cubist design on the doors and the brass  hardware .The design is unusual  by its high  quality compared to most of the mass produced furniture of this era .I found it  in Hollywood ,California which was a center of creation in 1940's and 1950's for  the movie industry. This sideboard has a live in feel  contrary to some of  the mid-century piece mass produced without any trace of age or life . Instead of a soullessness typical of some of the design of this  era this piece has originality and warmth .The wood is ebonized not painted.
