Rare 18th Century Louis XV-Louis XVI Transition Period Enfilade d'Appui
Rare 18th century cherrywood gentleman's height enfilade with four drawers over four doors handcrafted by skilled artisans from the Lyon region during the French Transition period (1750-1775). Most Transition period pieces were created outside Paris by provincial cabinet makers and combined design elements used during the reign of Louis XV (1723-1774) with Louis XVI (1774-1792) motifs in the same piece. When Louis XVI assumed the throne in 1774 after his father's death, Rococo tendencies and Baroque excess were no longer popular. A movement was underway that favored the clean, straight lines of the neoclassical style.
The shaped, carved apron and the short, raised cabriole legs of this enfilade d'appui feature timeless Louis XV inspired motifs, in contrast with the elongated diamonds carved on the drawers, which are typical Louis XVI period motifs. The interior has a single shelf.
