Commode Regence

A commode in marquetry, bronze, and marble, French, 19th century...


Regence-style commode in marquetry, bronze, and marble. French, epoque Napoleon III, 19th century.

The gently curved front houses 4 full width drawers of equal size. Fluted brass bands decorate the horizontal drawer dividers and flank the face’s front corners. The drawer fronts are decorated with bronze handles and escutcheon. The chest is raised on low bracket feet connected by a stylized apron, which are also decorated in bronze. Topped in contoured red and white marble. Finished with a marquetry of geometric design.

In good unrestored condition. Wear and use as to be expected for age. There is a small loss to the veneer at the back edge of the right side (visible in pictures).

Charming proportion and size. A practical piece – its small size gives it great flexibility in terms of placement, yet its configuration with 4 drawers maximizes its storage potential.
