Chest of drawers said "de port" in solid mahogany, 18th century

Exceptional crossbow chest of drawers in solid Cuban mahogany opening with three rows of drawers. Period XVIIIth century.
Unique model of truly ceremonial chest of drawers said "harbor", it is distinguished by its deep moldings, so-called "à grands cadres", which decorate the drawers of winding reserves formed protruding and adorned with scrolls that frame the bronzes.
These same amounts moldings along the front punctuated with arched feet windings.
Plan view, the dresser has a path movement-called "Crossbow" jumps to well marked. The tray frame, molded a beautiful bec-de-corbin , bride faithfully these contours.
The low cross, and generously scalloped hem of a molding in quarter-round, the center is decorated with a pattern Regency carved shell-shaped flange asymmetric so-called "bat wing". There is a beautiful cover of this cut on the lower side rails while the upper cross is so called "chapel", and molded to any flowerbed.

Note: such moldings in façade, also opulent, does not occur usually on a mahogany chest of drawers, while it is customary to meet her on a model Provencal in walnut, which it borrows shapes and decorations. It is therefore most likely a piece of furniture called "de commande" for a wealthy shipowner. Confirming its ceremonial character, the dresser has a rich golden bronze trim (of origin).

Bonding: fonçures in fir, mounting dovetail drawers, dust covers between drawers, locks and original key.
