Location: Baton Rouge

The austere architecture of the Louis Philippe style has made it a favorite of designers for over a century and a half! This example, hand-crafted from exotic imported mahogany, features the typical tailored lines, but with an Italian twist~ the swirling patterns of the marble top indicate a style flair that could not be resisted by the artisans who made this lovely example. It is the original "sandwich" marble, as well! The "bookmarked" veneering on the drawer facade is truly a work of art unto itself, requiring extremes in both patience and skill.
Circa 1840s.
Measures 37.25 x 49.5 x 22.75.
