Antique Chest w/Fossilized Top
A French early 19th century carved wood chest with a fossilized and honed marble top. This antique oak wood chest of three drawers features beautifully carved motifs of swagged ribbons falling gently about the center of the drawer fronts, just over each escutcheon. There are delicately carved flowers on each far end of the drawer fronts, at the edges of it's oblong-shaped panel which has been accented in finely scalloped trim. The sides are paneled with a leaf motif carved at each of their four corners. There are vertically carved leaves down the side posts and onto the feet. The skirt and top cornice are both nicely carved with a single flower at their centers. This oak chest has a very subtle hint of pale blue/grey accenting some of the trim throughout. The fossilized and honed marble top was a later addition to this piece.Dimensions
