In restored condition
This beautiful chest of drawers was made at the end of the 18th century. It has the features of the Louis XV style, such as the bulged shape and the use of burr-walnut glued in cross seam on the furniture. In addition it has the features of the Louis VXI style, such as the carved bow and wreath on the apron and the vases and garlands on the mounts. The furniture is made of oak which has been glued with very nice burr-walnut veneer. The front legs are cut out of walnut and depict claws around a ball.
The sides of the furniture have a small vertical crack; less than one mm. This has been filled and coloured and is barely visible. The same is the case at the top. The lock of the middle drawer is missing and has once been neatly filled with wood (see last photo). Otherwise there is no damage or loose veneer to the furniture. The cabinet is in it wax finishing, giving the burr-walnut a gorgeous look and a very nice satin gloss.
Dimensions: 65 x 110 x 87 cm.
