Mid-18th Century French Louis XIV Period Hand Carved Chestnut Commode or Chest



This mid-18th century French Louis XIV period hand carved chestnut commode or chest is from the Ile de France region surrounding Paris. Of an unusual small scale originally meant for a Paris apartment, this piece features four drawers of dovetail construction with facades of symmetrical hand carved panels fitted with their original bronze drawer pulls and escutcheons. Hand pegged with solid panel sides and fluted rounded corners that support its beveled top, this sturdy piece would be ideal as a nightstand. Includes four keys, circa 1750.
