circa: Early 1900s
A petite pair of Louis XV style bedside cabinets, circa 1900. Magnificently constructed, they have an elegant bombe shape and excellent rosewood veneer applied to create chevron detail on all sides. The tops are breche marble from Provence, with different tones of purple set against a warm cream. Marble tops are secured with a brass trim. Both cabinets have two drawers in front, each measuring 7.25" wide, 6.5" long and 2" deep, a pull out shelf at the top with embossed burgundy leather, and a single surprise side drawer measuring 5" wide, 8.25" long and 2.5" deep. Round brass pulls, brass acanthus sabots on the feet, and brass trim around the marble complete the set. Purchased in Lyon.
Condition: A few light water rings on both marble tops, visible only in reflected light. Minor flaws on veneer throughout. Modest veener restoration at beveled edges of both cabinets and some veneer loss. Minor scuff at back of one cabinet.
