About

A highly decorated cherrywood Louis XV-Louis XVI transition chest of drawers with parquet marquetry and red marble top, circa 1900. Elements of both periods are worked seamlessly into the piece with motifs and construction. The piece is bean shaped, oval with slight indentations on the front. Cherrywood body with tight parquetry veneer on the sides, back, and drawer fronts. Brass hardware throughout, with acanthus leaf handles, ribbons on the key escutcheons, she'll motif on the apron, ribbon and roses adorning the body, and little acanthus sabots on the front feet. A pierced brass gallery rings the top, with two rows of heart cut-out. The marble top is red languedoc, varying tones of brownish red with bold streaks of creamy white. Gently curved, attenuated legs have delicately incised lines for added detail. The two drawers have working locks which share a key, both measure 12.75" wide, 10" long, and 5" deep.
