Rare Small Port Commode, Louis XV Period, With Modestly Curved Front.
Its essence is a Solid, Robust and Precious Wood called Amaranth.
Its top is Miter Cut and edged with a Groove Molding.
This Storage Unit opens with three drawers. Each of them is embellished with a pair of drop handles framed by a Molding and, in the middle, a Relief Sculpture, representing two Acanthus leaves and small Flowers. It should be noted that these Decors are the result of meticulous cabinetmaking work, since they were designed with knockout, in other words shaped by the size of the wood in its thickness.
These drawers have an identical depth of 11.5 cm, and are separated by dust covers. All three are decorated with an ornate entrance, in brass, and a lock in working order. Everything is Original. The Cabinet is supplied with its three adjusted keys, which are posterior.
The knockout technique described above is ubiquitous on this Furniture since it was also used in the Rounded Front Uprights, on the sides, and in the Elegantly Framed Low Cross. On the latter it is a motif of a Star surrounded by Branches which is thus represented.
The Sides of this Cabinet are Paneled, and see their High Parts Movement.
The set rests on two Escargot feet at the front, and two Half-Winkle feet at the rear, which is rare.
We will admire the Value and Personality that emanate from this almost 300-year-old Port Dresser. In addition, its Moderate dimensions will allow it to find a place anywhere in your home.
