Antique French Louis Philippe Marble Top Commode. Louis Philippe ruled in unpretentious fashion, avoiding the pomp and lavish excesses of his predecessors and antique French furniture of that era reflects the austerity of the period. Abandoning the elaborate and carved elements of past French stiles did not mean that French would depart from quality and superb craftsmanship in furniture, art or architecture. Louis Philippe period antique furniture is a true expression of the conflicts in the time when the regal authority was restored with restrained elegance.
Circa 1860s.
Measures 39 x 51 x 22.
