Location: Baton Rouge

Crafted from a mixture of fine indigenous woods and exotic imported species like mahogany, this pair of nightstands exude the classical lines of the Louis XVI style. Stylized foliates and ribbon motifs, with suspended tassels and mother-of-pearl accents adorn the cabinet doors, all on a background of burl walnut. Cross-matched mahogany and olive wood create a framework, a motif repeated on the drawer façade. Cast bronze ormolu mounts, drawer pulls and keyguards add a nice touch, as does the finely veined rouge marble tops.
Circa early 1900s.
Each measures 32.5 x 15 x 17.
