Bellanger S. is identified as a carved furniture fabricant and antiques repairer. He settled at 61 Sts Pères Street, Paris, between 1867 and 1876 and won a medal at the Exposition Universelle of 1867.
The tomb shape of commodes is an innovation appeared mostly during the Regence period at the beginning of the 18thcentury and the cabinetmaker André-Charles Boulles (father) was certainly the creator or an important contributor of this newness. Cf the pair of tomb shaped commodes delivered to Louis XIV at Trianon, today kept in Versailles.
