Using exotic imported flame mahogany, bookmatched on each drawer façade, the artisans who created this commode kept the style simple in keeping with the austerity of the Louis Philippe movement. Topped with rouge marble, it is as functional as it is well-made, and perfect for blending with most any décor.
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 styles 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 1850s.
Measures 41.5H x 51W x 21.5D.
