An exquisitely patinated Louis XV enfilade, hand-carved from oak in the 1700s, this large French sideboard features a luxurious 1 1/4″ thick rouge marble top with gray and cream veining, meticulously carved with a quarter-round edge for added elegance. The oak body showcases a hand-painted parcel finish (which is not original), featuring harmonious hues of cream, gray, and brown, allowing it to be paired with a variety of color palettes. Three belt drawers are adorned with iron knobs and pierced mounts, providing both practicality and aesthetic appeal. The two outer doors exhibit asymmetrical panels, while a central door features an arbalete arched top beneath a floral margent, adding delicate details. The highly shaped apron, embellished with a flowering parted leaf medallion, seamlessly transitions into cabriole blocked feet in the front (with large blocks in the back), and the side aprons gently curve, completing the ensemble. Elevate your home with this remarkable piece of history and artistry.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with minor rubs and losses to wood. Very light scratches to the top, commensurate with age and use. Two functioning locks, each with their own key. The iron hinges have oxidized, adding to the charm of the enfilade. The finish was added more recently using traditional French techniques and natural pigments.
