FRENCH LOUIS XV STYLE KINGWOOD AND ORMOLU BOMBE COMMODE
Circa late 19th/early 20th century
Item # 609ZSG25A 


A most handsome piece from the turn of the centuries, this commode features a rich surface of crossbanded kingwood veneers set in undulating patterns that set light and dark woods against each other with light stringer inlays perfectly edging the parquetry and providing symmetry between the shaped apron and the form of the stringers.  The bombe form of the commode with its swollen serpentine carcass lends a certain boldness to the powerful form.  A thick conforming marble top projects lightly over the chest below, the upper fitted with a pair of drawers that lock from a single mechanism between the two.  The lower two drawers are full width and all drawers have beautifully bevelled edges, the front corners locked tight with large dovetails and the back corners with a nailed joint.  Finely chiseled and fully developed gilt bronze mounts highlight the corners, drawers and focal point of the apron.

Measurements:  56 1/4” W x 23” D x 34 5/8” H

Condition Report:
Crack in original marble repaired at some point, the bonding material inpainted somewhat poorly.  Rear proper right foot restored.  Other minor veneer patches and color touch ups.  Light scuffs and abrasions to finish and marble top from gentle use.
