Italian Louis XV 18th Century Marquetry Bombe Commode

The bombe shape being one of the hardest forms for a cabinet maker to achieve so only a skilled cabinet maker would make such a commode.

This is a very fine example of 18th Century Italian furniture in excellent condition with a great colour and patina having been recently restored using traditional methods. The parquetry panels are very decorative, fine and perfectly proportioned to the piece, also with ample storage having two long drawers.
