19th Century Country French Petite Commode, Nightstand

About the Item

19th Century Country French petite commode ~ nightstand will make the perfect finishing touch for your classic, casual decor! Ideal to use in virtually any room between windows, in a seating group or of course as a bedside companion, its three drawers are ideal for keeping smaller items organized. The top is beveled and contoured to follow the archer's bow shape of the drawer facade, a style called en arbalette by the French. The exquisitely contoured facade has been adorned with shell and floral volutes on each end pointing to the elaborately cast brass key guards at the centers. The apron underneath is a work of art unto itself, centered with a scallop shell in the form of a basket of flowers for an intriguing look, flanked by arches that are carved with shell motif leading the eyes to the front two of four elegant cabriole legs. The front legs are carved with pineapple, foliate and intertwined scrollwork, leading the eyes down to the sculpted animal's paw feet. An excellent choice for the discriminating decorator! Circa 1880s. Measures 39 H x 26 W x 16.5 D.

  • Davis Cabinet French Country Walnut Serpentine Commode Chest Table Nightstand
    By Davis Cabinet Company
    Located in Dayton, OH
    "Vintage Davis Cabinet Company commode or side table. Made of Walnut featuring square serpentine form with two drawers, carved accents and cabriole legs. Circa late 20th century, Nashville Tennessee. These words of our venerable leader introduce this short history of our firm which began in 1929. There are certainly older furniture companies ---- and obviously younger ones, but quite likely, none with a more romantic history or a more Horatio Alger-like history than ours. Davis Cabinet Company began as the dream of one man, Lipscomb ""Lip"" Davis, and as is the case with most dreams, this one ---- the impractical idea of building fine furniture from solid wood ---- was thought to be an impossibility. Wood, like steel and iron and most other substances, expands and contracts with climate changes. Furniture built of solid wood must of necessity rack itself to pieces through the inexorable changes of expansion and contraction. Lipscomb Davis thought otherwise. His personal philosophy might be expressed as ""Anything can be accomplished if it is done correctly"", and to this end he had already conceived and engineered a startling new concept of free floating construction that would allow the solid wood case construction to move at will . . . . naturally . . . and thereby avoid the stresses of climatic change. The opportunity to test the idea came dramatically in 1929 ---- but we're getting a bit ahead of our story. While Davis Cabinet Company was formed in 1929, it really had its beginnings around the turn of the century as a sawmill located near Fifth Street on the banks of the Cumberland River. The mill produced lumber from logs rafted down the river from neighboring forests. A ready market existed for most of the high grade lumber turned out by the mill. But, in order to utilize their entire production, the enterprising mill owners formed a subsidiary business, Standard Furniture Company. Here, they manufactured primarily veneered bedroom suites and sewing machine cabinets...
