French 19th Century Petite Empire Neoclassical Mahogany Commode with Original Marble Top

Product Barcode Id: 00006470

This wonderful Empire mahogany commode was hand crafted in 19th century France; four drawers and neoclassical details comprise this outstanding chest of drawers or commode. This case piece is topped with an interesting piece of black, gray and white fossil marble that, along with the body, has patinated wonderfully over the decades. Iconic of the Empire style, two curved columns flank the bank of dovetailed drawers, and the commode has stunning decorative brass lions, phoenix and acanthus leaves. The whole stands on sturdy tapered feet and is covered with richly colored and beautiful bookmatched mahogany veneer. The frieze houses a secret hidden drawer without hardware; it opens easily with grooves hidden on the underside of the drawer. Three lower drawers each feature a pair of highly decorative cast brass pulls with simple brass inset keyholes. Will add elegance to any room in the house!
