Walnut Bronzes Origin
Work Provençal - Nîmes Epoque 18th century

Right front foot formerly restored. Small recovery on the board.


Historical Annecdote : The fitting of the Nîmoises chest of drawers testifies to the know-how of the Provençal carpenters in the 18th century. Indeed, quality furniture has the particularity of not being pegged on the plate which makes the assembly invisible on the top and reinforces the aesthetics of the model.
