French furniture of the 18th century

The horizontal veneer of the front uprights accentuates the very pronounced curve of the whole. Sainte-Anne gray marble top, molded with a bec-de-corbin. Pull handles, keyholes, in chiseled bronze in the French style. Swedish or northern German work, from the middle of the 18th century. V
