Object Description

The good quality Louis XV style salmon pink painted pine carcass, having been scraped back to its original surface, the faux grey marble painted top over a typical continental arrangement of two long deep drawers, each being dummy line painted and with rococo brass handles and escutcheons, to a shaped frieze and cabriole legs, surviving from the last quarter of nineteenth century France.

Object History


Object Literature

The furniture of the Louis XV period (1715-1774) is characterised by curved forms, lightness, comfort and asymmetry; it replaced the more formal, boxlike and massive furniture of the Style Louis XIV. It employed marquetry, using inlays of exotic woods of different colors, as well as ivory and mother of pearl.

Very pretty indeed.

Object Condition

The condition proves sound overall. The drawers glide smoothly, the whole proves sturdy and in good original order with a super colour. The escutcheons and handles are original with some old sporadic woodworm to the whole. We have waxed her to retain the current patina and finish.
