Purpose of the Egyptian Louis XV Commode

Unique Craftsmanship of the Original Louis XV Commode
A unique method of crafting and protecting the vertical sides was to decorate the edges of the drawer by following the curved outline of the furniture to decorate it with bronze or ormolu guild work. As extravagance and luxury became more popular, the Louis XV Commodes became more decorated with ormolu.
