Curved chest of 4 drawers in walnut – 18ᵗʰ century – Rhône Valley

Like most of the Rhône Valley furniture, this chest of drawers boasts a large volume to appear and impress on the occasion of the receptions organized by the notables and the merchants for this purpose.

Quatre tiroirs généreux, deux en haut, deux en bas
Four generous drawers, two at the top, two at the bottom

Hence a profusion of ostentatious decorations: falls of lambrequins on the uprights, eventful moldings delimiting four drawers, themselves set with stylized shells in the center and on the sides.
The bronze handles are decorated with plant motifs and ram’s heads.
