A northern French mid-18th century cherry wood enfilade from Picardy with three drawers over three doors and floral décor. Born during the reign of king Louis XV, this French cherry enfilade features a rectangular planked top with rounded edges, sitting above three long and narrow drawers. The central drawer is carved with an exquisite décor of sinuous floral scrolls, set inside a molded cartouche. The flowers' stems seem to be intertwined with the shield-shaped escutcheon. This central drawer is flanked with two others, accented with a flower-carved pull and two cartouches. Three doors below are delicately adorned with curvy molded panels and echo the floral motifs of the lateral drawers. Slender daisies highlight the panels that separate the doors and drawers from one another. A beautifully scalloped skirt connect the scrolled feet in the front, while the enfilade is raised on straight feet in the back. With its great proportions and exquisite décor, this French period Louis XV Picarde enfilade, circa 1750 will be a lovely decorative accent in any home, particularly in a living room or dining room.
