This beautiful piece, a commode arbalèt, or "crossbow", form, is period Louis XV with original brasses featuring a monkey and a bear. This is a provincial piece with evidence of its age and wear, and with a beautiful patina. The wood is tremendously thick throughout, making this a sturdy, heavy piece set on delicate and original feet. Signed with an impressed "B."
