Empire chest of drawer with ormolu mahogany, marble top, c.a. 1860’s France.

A French Empire period chest of drawers from the 1850s constructed out of mahogany and adorned with ormolu mounts would be a magnificent piece of furniture, showcasing the opulence and elegance characteristic of the Empire style. Mahogany was a popular wood choice during the Empire period due to its rich color, durability, and ability to take on intricate carvings and details. Ormolu refers to finely gilded bronze mounts often used to embellish furniture during the Empire era. These mounts were intricately designed and added a luxurious touch to the piece. They could take the form of decorative elements such as lion heads, laurel wreaths, or mythological motifs. The use of marble for the top of the chest of drawers adds a sense of grandeur and sophistication. Marble was commonly employed in Empire furniture as it symbolized wealth and luxury. Bun feet, round and bulbous in shape, were a characteristic feature of Empire furniture. They provided stable support and added a distinctive aesthetic element to the overall design. The French Empire style emerged during the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte (early 19th century) and was characterized by a revival of classical themes from ancient Rome and Greece. Furniture from this period often featured bold, symmetrical designs, decorative motifs, and a preference for dark, rich woods. The craftsmanship of furniture from the French Empire period was highly detailed, showcasing intricate carvings and attention to detail. The combination of mahogany, ormolu mounts, marble, and bun feet would have required skilled artisans to create a piece of such high quality. An Empire period chest of drawers like this would not only have served a functional purpose but also made a statement about the owner's taste, wealth, and appreciation for classical aesthetics. Such pieces are often considered valuable antiques today, reflecting the craftsmanship and design trends of the 19th century. Chest is in very good condition, structurally sound.
