18th Century Louis XV Period Carved Walnut Two-Drawer Commode from Fourques
This important antique fruitwood commode was crafted in Southern France, during the reign of King Louis XV, circa 1745-1749, which was determined by its tax stamp.

Underneath, the cabinet is decorated with a scalloped apron with a carved shell motif, and finished with cabriole feet with leaf decor and escargot feet. Called “commode de Fourques”, the chest of drawers comes from the ancient city of Fourques in the heart of Provence. The cabinet is in museum quality condition and adorns a rich and deep walnut patina. Place this fruitwood chest of drawers in an entry, living room or master bedroom. Measures: 54″ W x 24″ D x 36″ H.
