Paul Sormani (1817-1877) was born and trained as a cabinetmaker in Venice, then moved to Paris where he specialized in furniture in the Louis XV and Louis XVI styles and was commissioned by Empress Eugénie to create furniture for the imperial palaces. Following Sormani’s death in 1877, his widow, Ursule-Marie-Philippine Bouvaist, and his son, Paul-Charles, continued to produce furniture. The lockplate of this elegant secrétaire is marked with their stamp, Vve. P SORMANI & FILS. (est. $10,000-20,000).
A George III sterling silver covered soup tureen by Thomas Robins, London, 1810, is a classic example of the robust designs associated with Regency silver that reflected the prosperity of 19th century England (est. $7,000-10,000).
