19th-century Louis XVI walnut sauteuse commode w/ 2 drawers 35¾"

SKU: 16796

An exquisite late eighteenth-century Louis XVI style two-drawer walnut commode sauteuse with gilded bronze hardware and four tapered legs that are fluted on the corners. This curiously named style of commode always features two drawers perched on high legs, which gives the amusing impression that the chest of drawers is ready to jump (or sauter, the French verb for "to jump"), like a frog. The gilt bronze hardware with drop handle pulls feature decorative urns on the keyplates. No keys.
Note: wormwood marks can be observed on the lowermost apron piece consistent for pieces of this age. Please note the piece will be professionally cleaned prior to dispatch to remove any visible ring marks on the wood top.

Condition and wear consistent with age and use.
Approx. overall 35¾" high x 43¼" wide x 21¾" deep
Approx. overall 91cm high x 110cm wide x 55cm deep
