19th Century French Empire Antique Mahogany Commode Chest of Drawers

About

A lovely Empire commode with an Egyptian black marble top, it features the most attractive display of flamed mahogany veneer matching throughout the drawers. The three center drawers rest over a hidden lower drawer situated as the apron, these flanked by oversized columns with stamped brass rings finishing the base and intricate stamped capitals over simple turned feet. The secondary woods of the case are oak, the back of the case showing the generous pinned tenon-mortise joinery typical of the period and the top joined with large hand cut dovetails beneath the marble. It is a beautiful piece that would be even more refined if it were fully conserved and French polished. Measurements: 37” H x 50 1/8” W x 23 5/8” D. Condition report: In overall fair-to-good condition, should be conserved again at some point as the surface is a bit dull and old conservation has worn. Cracks in the sides of the case. Restorations including patching of veneers on the drawers, facings of both back feet replaced, iron brackets added to three corners on the back of the chest for strength, one metal bracket added to brace beneath bottom drawer, inpainting of blemishes. No key, two keyhole escutcheons different than the top. Originality of marble and ormolu unknown.
