Antique Louis Philippe French Mahogany Chest of Drawers circa 1850


This chic chest has a smaller scale than most antique Louis Philippe circa 1850 chest of drawers making it eminently useful beside a sofa or next to a bed. The luscious mahogany timber that sheathes the entire façade features a bold pattern of grain that extends the full width and height of the French chest of drawers. The top of this chest has angled corners and overhangs the body to balance the proportion of the base and feet. The angle cut continues down the front vertical corners and is repeated at the base and emphasizes the geometric quality of the style created during the reign of King Louis Philippe (1830-1848). The top and sides have straight grain mahogany chosen to contrast the organic movement of the flame grain seen on the front of antique chest with its four drawers. All drawers have a pair of circular ring pulls with a centre escutcheon that identifies the keyhole. Not only decorative the escutcheons protected the precious timber from the iron key when it is inserted into the lock.

WIDTH: 38¼ in | HEIGHT: 32 in | DEPTH: 18½ in
