We kindly suggest that you read the entire description, as we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to ensure the authenticity of our objects. Elegant and refined French nightstand in the Napoleon III style; on the front, it has two large drawers, the front is shaped and is surrounded by a gold wire frame; the knobs are made of a beautiful brass casting representing a flower with a crown of leaves, also made of brass are the guards that are at the end of the legs; also made of burnished brass is the fine railing that protects the marble top; the four legs are tapered toward the bottom and have grooves along the body; the entire nightstand is made of oak, a wood that because of its strength and toughness is used for the construction of fine and durable furniture; the black varnish makes it exclusive and personal. The marble used for the top is a "Bianco Statuario di Carrara," extracted from quarries in the Apuan Alps in the territory of Carrara (Tuscany-Italy); it is one of the clearest marbles it has a very low rate of impurities. It has a very ancient formation dating back almost 200 million years when northern Tuscany was completely covered by the sea on the bottom of which was deposited calcareous sediment that allowed the formation of this marvelous white marble, characterized by a homogeneous background paste with shiny granules. It is one of the varieties of the famous pietra viva, and it is no coincidence that all the greatest sculptors and artists in history (Michelangelo, Donatello, Bernini. Canova) made their most famous works precisely this excellent variety of marble, with such elegant hues that it seems almost ethereal. The nightstand was produced in the Napoleon III style between 1880 and 1885 by a craft workshop in the French town of Liffon-le-Grand located in the Vosges department in the Grand Est region. The Napoleon III style took up the more serious and austere forms of the First Empire. Still, the Eclecticism, which distinguished the period, made it more graceful, refined, and elegant, reflecting and well representing the socio-cultural and economic period that France was experiencing at the time.
