18th Century Walnut and Oak Chiffonier Chest of Drawers from France

$3,800Asking Price

About

This 18th Century, five drawer commode or chiffonier from France has been made from French walnut and oak. The top is gently shaped inward at the center front as are all of the drawers. The five drawers have been adorned with bronze Louis XV style hardware having scrolling leaves, stylized shells and flowers in an asymmetrical manner. The keyholes are decorative only. The drawer frontages have raised panels, with domed shaped ends, and there are spandrels in all four corners of each drawer front. The lower apron has the same hardware and ornamentation. There are rounded corners with moldings that lead all the way into the scrolling front feet. The sides have two raised panels each with the upper panels being arched with shaped indents. A French chiffonier is a type of chest of drawers that became popular in the early 1700s and was used to store clothing. A more common type of chifonnier is a "semainier", which has 7 drawers, one for each day of the week.
