Antique French Louis XVI Marble Top Marquetry Commode is a charming example of fine craftsmanship from three disciplines of the furniture maker's art!  Utilizing exotic imported mahogany in conjunction with lighter colored maple for contrast, the woodworkers inlaid olivewood, satinwood and walnut to create an artistic image of a cherub playing music surrounded by laurel swags.  Subtly scrolled legs and a tailored apron are embellished with cast bronze mounts, with the legs in front set on 45 degree angles.  A luxurious gray marble top follows the contours of the casework below for carefree elegance.  Cast bronze drawer pulls, key guards, and Greek coin across the upper drawer add the final touch.
Circa early to mid-1900s.
