Part of a pair of carved oak low cupboards with decoration in the style of Louis XV. Each is raised on short feet with shaped apron carved with scrolls and diapering with a central shell. On the front of each cupboard are carved with acanthus, and the panels have moulded frames of carved shells, with the vine and the wheat, trophies of musical instruments and in the centre, bow, arrows and a torch.
These sideboards are possibly those supplied to John and Josephine Bowes by Monbro in 1855 for 440 francs, and recorded in the dining room at Louveciennes in 1862.
