French Empire Period Walnut Commode with Marble Top and Bookmatched Front
A fine 19th century French Empire period four drawer commode handcrafted of walnut, circa 1810. Having a bookmatched walnut front, this handsome chest features a charcoal black fossil marble top that rests above a hidden apron drawer with three full size drawers below. Typical of the Empire period, two ornate columns featuring decorative brass capitals and bases flank the bank of drawers. Original gilt brass hardware adorns the three lower drawers. Raised on tall carved block feet. Strong and masculine, Empire furniture has a definitive geometric shape with level surfaces and distinct angles. Decorations were symmetrical, and motifs mirrored one another on each side. The scale of the drawers in this beautiful commode ensures an ample amount of storage wherever this chest is placed.
