18th Century Country French Louis XV Period Commode was fashioned from indigenous old-growth oak to last for centuries, and features cast bronze pulls and key guards that were added during the 19th century.  Carved details abound on the undulating apron below that flares out for added emphasis, supported by carved and scrolled feet.  The drawer facades are more tailored, with french scrolled molding creating a panel effect, with a slight undulation of the face for a visual flair.  Note the pegged mortise & tenon joinery, all performed exclusively by hand with rudimentary but effective tools.  Capacious storage awaits inside the cavernous drawers!
