Crafted from solid French red oak to last for generations, this handsome commode features classic lines and baroque ornamentation making it perfect for a wide variety of decors. The facade has been contoured en arbalette to resemble an archer's bow, and was hand-carved with shell motifs with intricate molded detailing enhanced by the cast brass pulls and keyguards. Shells and foliates appear on the contoured apron, cornerposts, and boldly scrolled legs. The cross-hatched corners of the chamfered side panels lead the eye to the rear legs which are also cabriole-shaped and fitted with cloven hoof feet. An unusually neutral piece of marble was selected, then painstakingly contoured and beveled for a precise fit.
Circa turn-of-the-century.
Measures 36 x 35 x 21.5.
