The effort it takes to produce such a masterwork of the cabinetmaker's art is too complex to describe here, but suffice to say this 19th Century French Louis XV Marble Top Bombe Commode is the product of truly gifted artisans!   The subtle curvature of the casework catches the eye, and when looking closer, one discovers the richly adorned facade in front using multiple species of wood to create art ~ marquetry ~ depicting a classic urn bursting with a floral display.  Fine detail is afforded with inlay of contrasting woods, with cross-matched grain patterns on the sides.  Hand-cast bronze mounts on the curved shoulders & cornerposts complement the elegant drawer pulls.  Topped with sculpted, contoured marble for the perfect finishing touch!
Circa 1890s
