rge sideboard made in the  1940's or early 1950's in France with the distinctive flavor of the French designer Leleu , clear line made of dark wood (mahogany) with  inlaid macassar  doors . The use of Ebony and brass hardware create  a classic contrast blending traditional design with modern line.  Francis Jourdain said  about simple form :"... the disappearance of ornament is the proof of the revolution of civilization and notion of beauty ...."  The  inlay are also a trademark of Leleu . This piece is built  in solid mahogany  , it can be disassembled  which is a construction process they  stopped in the 1950's due to the cost. It is signed in the back with a bone cartouche including a fading Jules Leleu signature .

  Size H.39x L.91 x W.21 , very good antique condition , recently refinished ,  original keys , 2 shelves and drawers
