Antique French Louis XVI Ebonized Mahogany 3 over 3 Commode w/Marble


Absolutely breathtaking antique French Louis XVI style 3 over 3 commode retaining it's original dark marble top. The black ebonized mahogany finish is deep and rich, providing an elegant contrast to it's polished original brass trim. Storage abounds in this fine commode making it perfect for use in a bedroom storing linens and clothes, in the living parlor keeping necessities close at hand but out of sight, or in the entry foyer as a console by hanging a marvelous mirror up top. This dynamite commode will take your breath away with it's stunning good looks and perfect proportions. With all this being said, let's get to the nitty-gritty. Most all our pieces have undergone some sort of restoration, whether its received a fresh coat of beeswax or a masterpiece that has taken weeks to complete. My talented craftsmen keep one thing in mind, that no matter what the piece is, big and tall or small and mighty--they are here to preserve these furnishings for many future generations delight. This commode, as jaw dropping as it is, went through a painstaking process, making the case strong, tight and sturdy was first priority, without a stable foundation, you haven't anything. We then took each and every drawer, made sure they were square and snug, though easily maneuvered before checking, cleaning and oiling the locks--Thus offering you not only a jewel for your home but, an eye catching antique that should function as new and trouble free for many moons to come..
