Large French Louis Bombe Chest Marble Top
An exquisite, very large example of a French Louis style bombe chest with beautiful gold ormolu mounts and thick pull handles. A thick green marble rests on the top of it, in a curved shape to mirror the chest below in excellent condition. A small amount of veneer has chipped over time on the front of the piece (photographed) and there is a small amount of bubbling to the veneer on the other side (also photographed) but hardly noticeable overall. The age of the piece is thought to be mid 20th century, with dovetail joints on the drawers. The drawers all slide smoothly and are in lovely clean condition inside. It is a very well made, heavy piece and rare to acquire in such good condition.Measurements128 W at widest point of the drawers 125 W widest point of the marble 57.5 D93 HDeliveryDelivery usually takes around 1-2 weeks after purchase while the couriers arrange their routes.

I recommend using tumble drier sheets in the drawers/cupboards to keep them smelling fresh for longer.ReturnsWe hope that you love your piece as much as we do, but in the case that it wasn’t what you were looking for, you can return your item in its original condition within 14 days at your own expense of returning.We do advise to double check measurements along with door frames and ceiling heights before you purchase.
