French 19th Century Walnut Empire Commode
Dimensions: 35 3/8″H x 46 1/2″W x 23 1/4″D
Great care was taken through the years to maintain this exceptional solid walnut Empire period commode from France. The commode is complete with four total drawers, the topmost being hidden in the apron. The three lower drawers are all of equal size, have working locks with brass palm keys, and are outfitted with their original brass hardware. They each have two Empirically styled brass pulls and brass escutcheons cast with mirrored swans a-sipping, laurel wreaths and floral imagery. The drawers are flanked by columns that have Empirically styled brass capitals and bases. The solid walnut has acquired an exceptional patina and is in wonderful condition thanks to its former loving owners. c.1870.
