Restauration de la commode Boulle du duc d'Aumale

Dans le cadre de la restauration des Petits Appartements ou Appartements Privés, les Amis du Musée Condé ont déjà pris en charge une bonne partie du mobilier de l’appartement de la duchesse, comme l’ensemble de sièges de sa chambre (quatre chaises, bergère et duchesse) et le berceau du prince de Condé.

Le chantier avance et c’est maintenant le tour de l’appartement du duc. Nous espérons prendre en charge les restaurations jugées prioritaires par Nicole Garnier, conservateur général du Patrimoine chargée du musée Condé. Parmi les priorités, nous avons sélectionné cette commode Boulle dont la marqueterie écaille et laiton est très endommagée.

AIDEZ-NOUS A LA RESTAURER !
