While Louis XV chests of drawers are renowned for their refined decor, this one dares to combine this preserved charm with the robustness of country furniture. Its general appearance smells of deep Périgord where it was commissioned in the 18th century, probably by a peasant family who had succeeded in rising socially. One can imagine the cozy atmosphere of a beautiful manor house in which this charming piece of furniture was welcomed with open arms.
We observe the slight curve, typical of Louis XV, which gently animates the front and its drawers, four in number. The fittings are quite remarkable. Inspired by those produced in bronze at the Court of the King, the handles and keyholes are actually the result of the know-how of the local blacksmith who had succeeded in shaping complex shapes in tinned wrought iron.
This pretty country chest of drawers proudly claims its borrowing from the Louis XV style and its rural origin.
