Item # LFALO1555
Handsome antique French Louis Philippe four-drawer commode with original thick Carrara marble top, having canted corners that overhang the body to balance the proportion of the plinth base with its unusual scalloped apron and mounded bracket feet ending in sabots. The angle cut continues down the front vertical corners and is repeated at the base, emphasizing the geometric quality of the style created during the reign of King Louis Philippe (1830-1848). The facade is finished in meticulously bookmatched burled walnut that remains in excellent condition. The three lower drawers have a pair of circular pulls with a center escutcheon that identifies the keyhole. Not only decorative, the escutcheons protect the wood from the iron key when it is inserted into the lock. This exceptional commode, handcrafted by talented artisans from Bordeaux, retains its beautiful rich, original color and patina and has a fresh French polish.
Louis Philippe style is refined, linear and restrained. The strong, bold lines of Louis Philippe pieces make them an easy fit into an existing home. They mix with other periods and styles flawlessly.
