18th Century French Encoignures signed by Pierre Bernard at Tomlin Antiques



Museum 18th Century Corner Cabinets

A pair of Museum 18th Century Corner Cabinets signed by Pierre Bernard have just arrived at Tomlin Antiques at Highland Park Village. They are both dated back to 1755. The two corner cabinets were purchased and owned by King Edward and Wallace Simpson. They were purchased by Simpson for the Chateau de la Croe. This was the first home she and Edward owned after he abdicated the throne. Miss Simpson decorated the chateau with signed French 18th Century furnishings. The pieces were in the chateau until the German Occupation of World War II.

Find the gift he’s sure to love.  Shop some of our favorites at Highland Park Village.  We love the different shades of blue we are seeing this season. From bright cobalt to deep navy, the hues pair well with rich chocolate and whiskey leathers. The Slip Notched Lapel Blazer is on our wish list from rag & bone - the pattern is perfection. For one with a bit of adoration for all things nautical, shop Anchor Cuff Links from Ralph Lauren. As for a tie, you can never go wrong with Hermès.  We love the Piece Met. Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to shop for a new fragrance.  Hermès Vetiver Tonka is always a classic choice.  For a luxe addition to his office attire, don’t miss shopping the Cordovan Portfolio from Billy Reid. And, take the time to peruse new spring-ready arrivals at Cole Haan.  He will love the Christy Wedge Saddle Oxfords.
