19th Century French Louis XV Walnut Marble Top Nightstand is a classic example of the genre, rendered in sumptuous French walnut and topped with beautifully veined marble for a timeless effect.  The front facade has been beautifully carved directly into the cabinet door with relief depictions of flowers surrounded by stylized shell creating a framework.  A shell appears on the apron below, with tailored molding on the drawer above.  The four cabriole legs have been graced with carved detail, adorned with bold acanthus plumes on the shoulders and escargots on the tips of the feet.  Cast brass knobs add a nice accent, and the cabinet door opens to reveal a nice storage compartment, augmenting that of the drawer above.  Finished on all sides, it is suitable not only as a bedside companion, but also in other rooms as an end table or side table in a seating group, making a great spot for a lamp with a drawer for remote controls and a cabinet for books and magazines.
Circa 1880s
