Antique French Empire style commode or some may describe our lion paw foot commode as from the Restauration period, which was predominantly Neoclassicism. Our Old Plank restoration department completely rebuilt the drawers and the entire frame, but restrained from refinishing the mahogany. We of course enhanced the original French lion paw commodes finish, but were careful to leave the patina intact. The marble top of the lion paw commode is Belgium stone and has not been previously broken, but please carefully at the corners and surface imperfections that come with 150-year old stone. In the past, whenever we send out the marble to be restored, which is always possible, the stone comes back looking too new for our personal tastes. **The stone is scratched throughout and there are chips along the edge. Please pay close attention to all detail photos. **The veneer on the right side, image 2, has three ripples. It's honestly not that noticeable when taken out of the photography studio.
