Antique French Louis Philippe Burr Walnut Marble Top Commode~chest~mid 19th Cent:
~Recently Brought over directly from France!
~An unbelievable example of a late 1800's King Louis Philippe Burr Walnut Commode ~4 drawer Chest with Original white marble top and key.
~Please examine this item completely and carefully read my description before purchasing.
~The white marble top is streaked lightly with grey and Rounded corners. There are small chips that are intermittent around the edge, very normal for a piece that's this old. Most never survive and are replaced with a new one that will not have this character. This is an indicator for placing the age on a piece like this.
~Beneath the marble top there will be 4 Walnut blocks that have long since been gone. The Marble top hangs well beyond the edge and this is not noticeable in my opinion and if I kept this Commode I would leave as is.
~These can be remade.The keyholes will not have any brass in the keyholes, I'm uncertain if they ever did. There are 2 beautifully turned bun feet in the front that are rare to find on these Louis Philippe Commodes. It's just an older piece.
~The drawers are awesome~The dovetail joined drawers are Handmade well before machine uniform pieces. The bottom of the third drawer has been replaced and I've taken pictures to show the difference.
~The structure ~Frame of the piece is made of Oakwood and Veneered in Beautiful Walnut. There are many areas that show the tiger oak.
~There are many Letter marks and symbols in pencil in the drawers, can't make sense of it. Makers codes?
~A very heavy piece of course and very solid and longer than most.
~Please do your research and compare what's being sold out there. There are many Reproductions out there that are made very well, but not something like and Vintage Used Items:
