A French Louis XVI period wooden commode from the late 18th century, with two drawers, brass accents, fluted side posts and cylindrical legs. Born in France at the end of Louis XVI's reign, this commode features a rectangular top with rounded corners in the front, sitting above two dovetailed drawers each fitted with brass hardware and a brass trim. The side posts present a nicely cylindrical fluted design in the front that visually links the drawers to one another, while the side panels are simply recessed and each adorned with a thin brass trim. The ensemble is raised on four cylindrical tapering legs, presenting a lovely continuity with the side posts. With its clean neoclassical lines and nice patina, this French Louis XVI period 1790s commode will bring a graceful presence to any home, particularly in a bedroom, living room or foyer.
