Amazing 5 Pc Louis Xv Set 2 Dressers/chests 1 Lg Dresser 1 Column Pedestal For Sale
FABULOUS 5-PIECE SET OF LOUIS XV FURNITURE
Please read all of the details below because we'd like to be able to accurately describe this set.
First off, we recognize that some of the pictures are "challenging". This set is part of an estate that is literally CRAMMED with decorative pieces. There are at least 2000 "smalls" that decorate every square inch of the place. It was impossible to move everything out of the way to take better pictures, so what's here must suffice. We will try to answer any additional questions that people have though.
First, what's included in the set:
1. Very tall ornate column with marble top and very ornate ormulu mounts; bookmatched veneers, incredibly marquetry.
2. Smaller circular side table or console/pedestal with tri-leg and marble top
3. Wide drawer dresser or bombe chest with elaborate ormulu mounts
4 and 5. PAIR of small dressers (only 1 is shown, the other is in storage)
The condition on everything is generally excellent. One of the small chests has some minor cracking in the side veneer, but we wouldn't recommend to touch it. Leave it as is, it's beautiful. In general, there may be minor wear to edging or drawers, but there is nothing major to fix. Everything has been used for many years but well taken care of.
We cannot determine if the pieces are French or Swedish; it is possible (highly likely) that they are both. This was not a matched set; it is a coordinating set that works beautifully despite minor differences in color. As it was placed in the current estate where it sits, the pieces were used in different areas of the house, contributing to an overall style.
We were asked to sell this entire grouping as a set, but we will break them up if a strong offer is made on individual pieces. For example, the tall column/pedestal. A similar piece is on now for 2,500 English pounds, nearly $4,000 US. This piece can be broken from the set if a reasonable offer is made.
We will try to provide more detail as questions come in, and will post any answers on the listing when appropriate.
