Description

During the Louis XVI period, mahogany furniture became very fashionable since the wood was pleasing to work with and often featured beautiful grain patterns. The original finish of this Louis XVI style commode had been previously bleached, allowing the unique chenillé pattern (the faint shaded lines that streak through the grain) to gain prominence.

Hand-carved in France, circa 1900, the commode is definitively Louis XVI in style, from the rectangular fronts of the three stacked drawers to the gray marble top with rounded corners that overhangs the drawers beneath. Each of the three drawers has a thick molding with subtle bronze trim, accentuating a pair of beaded wreath drop handles and the crinkled ribbon key plate. The sides are comprised of rectangular inset panels and separated from the front façade by a pair of fluted pilasters that lie beneath the rounded portion of the marble. Similar fluting can be seen on the four tapering legs with bronze arrow feet.

This handsome commode is topped by a one inch thick marble top with chamfered molding on all sides except the back. The gray stone has white and light gray veining, dotted with the occasional tan grain. During the period of Louis XVI, commodes were used in just about every room in the house. With its neutral colors and subtle carvings, our French Louis XVI style bleached mahogany commode will be a great addition to your home, regardless of the interior design style.

CONDITION: Good antique condition with age separations and traces of old finish to the mahogany. Minor nicks, rubs, and fleabites to the marble top. Old fills with professional repair to one leg.
