19th Century Louis XV Style Lacquered Bow Front Demilune Sideboard


Grand late 19th century mahogany bow front sideboard chest or commode featuring a demilune form. The chest was crafted in England in the grand French Louis XV taste and now wears a seafoam green lacquer painted finish with parcel gilt embellishments. The sideboard is fronted by four wide storage drawers with patinated brass pulls. The drawers are lined with a Zuber style wallpaper having a vintage patina. Each curved end has a large conforming storage door with a curved shape and a three shelf storage area inside. The chest is supported by small cabriole legs with serpentine aprons along the bottom of the chest. Beautifully hand-painted with an intentionally aged patina to mimic age. The gilt highlights the floral and foliate carved moldings and borders further enhancing the demilune form case. The color provides a strong and whimsical focal point to any large room or entry. Provenance: From the estate of Frank J. Caufield Montecito, CA. The design of the chest compliments several design styles such as Georgian, Regency, and Empire.
