Calculate shipping cost
Sober and fine French commode with two large and deep drawers; the handles are in cast bronze well detailed; to complete the symmetry of the height of the drawers, has been applied a false lock decoration; on the top, there is a delicate edge elegantly shaped; the legs, slightly cabriole, are one with the structure; the bedside table has measures larger than normal and therefore can also be used as a small chest of drawers; it was produced in neoclassical style between 1760 and 1764 by an artisan workshop in the French town of Liffon-le-Grand located in the Vosges department in the Grand Est region, an area famous for woodworking. The era of its realization is the period of Regency of Louis XV, but from 1750 until the death of the king, it makes way for a different style of furniture, identified in France as Louis XVI and in the rest of Europe as Neoclassical, in which classical antiquity becomes a source of inspiration in the search for harmonies and proportions and where straight lines prevail and the use of decorations is reduced. The neoclassical Louis XVI style, sober and orderly, had its legitimacy even before the coronation of the king in 1774. Its right size, symmetry, and balance of proportions make our furniture a valuable and versatile object that can be inserted without difficulty in any type of environment.
