It is one of the varieties of the famous living stone and it is no coincidence that all the greatest sculptors and artists in history (Michelangelo, Donatello, Bernini. Canova) have created their most famous works precisely this excellent variety of marble, with such elegant colors that it seems almost ethereal. The chest was produced in the Napoleon III style between 1870 and 1875 by a craft workshop in the French town of Liffon-le-Grand located in the department of Vosges in the Grand Est region; The Napoleon III style took up the most serious and austere forms of the First Empire, but the Eclecticism, which distinguished the period, made it more graceful, refined and elegant reflecting and well representing the sociocultural and economic period that France was living then. The chest of drawers has small dimensions, but the symmetry and balance of proportions make it a valuable and versatile object that can be inserted without difficulty in any type of environment. Measures: Width cm.60, depth cm.31, height cm.74.
