PAIR OF VENETIAN ROCOCO PAINTED BEDSIDE COMMODES
Circa early 20th century
Item # 803MEX22 


A whimsical and delightful pair of chests with perfectly diminutive proportions, these are such a wonderful pair to flank a bed with restrained sizes and practical storage.  The old paint is worn and crackled from years of gentle use, the hummingbird design amongst swirls of florals and foliage being restrained and not in any way overwhelming.  A faux-marbling effect in the blue tops is balanced by the use of teals and blues throughout the rest of the case.  Each drawer slides easily in and out of the body and retains original brass knob hardware.  A scrolled apron is flanked by dramatic outward splaying and tapering legs.  These are an unusual and highly relevant form, one infrequently found on the market with such attractive design and condition.  

Measurements:  24 1/4 W x 12 5/8 D x 25 5/8 H

Condition Report:
Naturally worn and distressed surface, almost certainly original throughout.  Old cracks in sides and joints, including a few leg joints though these remain sturdy and strong.
