Cherry-wood curved chest of drawers – 18ᵗʰ century – South-West France
This chest of drawers is basically a sturdy and plain structure; however, the curved line of its front gives it an attractive wavy shape.
– The apex points follow a perfectly straight line, giving the illusion that there are nine
drawers, whereas there are in fact only three, enhanced by bronze handles.
– The sides are made up of the two panels separated by a pilaster.
– The elegant ensemble stands on four solid feet.
Dimensions: width – 125 cm; height – 99 cm; depth – 63 cm.
