Description

Small scale late 19th century Louis XVI style chest with three drawers that are flanked on each side by inlay parquetry that gives the illusion of fluted sides. The drawers feature beautiful walnut burl, additional inlay details, beaded brass drop-ring pulls and ribbon escutcheons. The piece is raised on tapered legs with the front legs capped in brass feet. The black marble top completes the sophisticated look of this petite chest, which is perfect for use as a bedroom nightstand or living room side table.
