Directoire Style Painted Chest of Drawers-This very well made Directoire style 5 drawer commode is stylish and beautiful. Constructed of mahogany then gessoed and painted in a dull light creamy green color the carved raised wood elements are painted in a deep forest green for contrast. The top faux marbled in a dramatic old world fashion adds interest and drama. The top is these picture reads lighter and brighter then in fact it is in person and has a browner colored glaze then the lighting shows here. The chest retains its original key and locks all drawers. Note the very nicely detailed bronze pulls and escutcheons. The whole chest retains a fine old surface and patina.
