Lyon chest of drawers in walnut

Chest of drawers in walnut, carved, opening to 3 drawers with beautiful bronzes.
The old Lyon chest of drawers from the 18th century is inspired by the Louis XV style.

The Lyon chest of drawers is easily recognizable by the layout of its rich carved decoration.

The front is slightly curved or crossbow.
The low belt is straight or curved, often with a Regency shell in the middle, and rests on low arched feet.

The top is made of wood and is carved in the shape of a "bec-de-corbin".

Scrolls, arabesques, acanthus leaves... are symmetrically arranged on the lateral edges of the drawers and in the spandrels, forming the carved decoration very characteristic of the Lyon style.

Lyon cabinetmakers almost always use walnut, which is easy to work and has a wonderful patina over time.
