Beautiful and interesting chest of drawers from the Louis XV period with marble top, curved shape on the front and on the sides, this high quality piece of furniture is made of quarter-cut oak for all the exterior faces and walnut for the construction of the drawers. quality.
The front opens with 5 drawers, distributed as follows: 2 small drawers and a so-called "secret" drawer on the first row and 2 large drawers on the lower rows, the drawer fronts rest on the wall and are molded with a small quarter round.
The chest of drawers is decorated with geometric patterns drawn by nets of blackened wood using the intarsia technique, inlaid in the oak these decorations adorn the facade with diamonds inscribed in rectangles distributed on either side of central reserves with decorated spandrel of quatrefoil, the sides of the dresser which are smooth are also decorated with blackened wood intarsia forming reserves with spandrel.
The work of the nets brings a lot of interest to this piece of furniture, it is there to recall the moldings and flowerbeds of the carpentry furniture inspired by architecture but while keeping a smooth surface, the work of the intarsia is l he ancestor of marquetry, it consists of inlaying a decorative element into a mass of stitches.
The geometric ornamentation with in particular the quatrefoil motif which is placed vertically at the axis of the chest of drawers, comes from Gothic architecture, it takes the form of the four-leaf clover, it is found in the frame of the oculus bay on religious buildings.
The bronze pull handles are original as well as 2 keyholes (the third is later of a different model and the keyhole of the intermediate drawer has a lack of decoration) these elements are decorated with vine leaves and grape as well as a medallion surrounded by rays of light and roses.
The top of the oak parquet chest of drawers receives a molded marble from a Corbin beak, this period marble seems to be the original of the piece of furniture, it is a beautiful royal red from Belgium, the marble was previously broken and re-glued - staple on the right angle (very discreet).
This piece of furniture is a quality regional work carried out during the Louis XV period. We acquired this chest of drawers in a private mansion in Aube, by family tradition this chest of drawers comes from the Lille region. It is in good condition, there are small wood grafts made on the facade, beautiful color of the wood and very pretty waxed patina.
