Sweet and elegant little solid wood chest of drawers, Louis XV in style
A sweet and elegant little chest of drawers probably closest in style to Louis XV/Louis Quinze -18th century French Rococo- furniture in its shape.
French Rococo design is characterised by supreme craftsmanship and the integration of the arts. The chest of drawers certainly displays these attributes.
The fantastically bowing shaped front, sides and carved top are all covered in an exquisitely striped statin wood veneer which has been arranged in a diamond chequer board pattern.
Complementing the shapes of the cabinet and the striking wood grain are flowing floral brass decorations, handles and key hole escutcheons.
Ideal size to use as bedside drawers or in a hall way.
Condition: Very good with age related patina. Locks are in good working order and complete with key.
