Dimensions
H 101cm

W 128cm

Description

"The Figdor Commode " late 16th early 17th Century . This genuine walnut chest of drawers comes from the well-documented collection of Dr. Albert Figdor. The well carved paw feet supports a solid walnut carcase with three carved front walnut drawers. Walnut was a luxury timber at this time until shipping made it possible to import Mahogany logs. The fine workmanship and excellent original condition retaining its original Patina are all value points that Dr. Figdor built his famous collection around. The lift top document space retains its original hand forged hinges and lock.

 

Dr. Figdor was an influential international banker based in Vienna during the turn of the 1900's. He established a vast collection of early European antiques dating from the 15th century up to the 18th century. His intention was to bequeath his collection to the city of Vienna, in order to establish a core collection for the newly built Vienna Applied Arts Museum. Although there appears some confusion as to why the necessary paperwork was never processed, the collection was dispursed by three public auction, plus addenda, in Berlin in 1930. Period catalogues of the time are highly sought after reference material as they provide not only descriptions but also photos of most items. This chest still retains its original auction warehouse house label. With such excellent provenance (another value point) the rarity of any Figdor collection pieces reaching the market is impossibly scarce and provides an excellent investment opportunity. This commode was purchased was purchased at the original auction of the collection in 1930, by an very influential family now residing in Canberra, Australia, and has been in their possession until now. We are very proud to be able to offer this fine piece of 400 year old history to the connoisseur. Inspection is available.

Title Biedermeier six drawer chest

Dimensions

Width 93cm

Height 140cm

Depth 50 cm

Description

Nice original Scandianvian Empire or Biedermeier period chest of 6 drawers in mahogany, circa 1825. Nice original condition with brass key hole escutcheons and a hand cut steel key with which to open the drawers with.

Each drawer is uniquely sized and all the drawer runners have been maintained to open smoothly. All the locks work properly too. The drawers are made of solid oak with book matched flame mahogany fronts. As in most European furniture of this period this piece disassembles into three sections for easy relocation. The crown top with its well carved cornice lifts off, below this the four drawer section lifts off the base with its lowest two drawers.

The whole rests on fine turned front feet and block rear feet.

Being in original unrestored condition where are a few minor points for complete disclosure. more images below . Some tiny veneer sections have come off around the edges of drawers, but this would only be noticed if pointed out, and does not affect their smooth operation. The very top flat surface has a shrinkage ( most likely due to central heating without moisture ). The timber underneath may well rehydrate in time and the small gap will close up nicely. Just like skin , timber does dry out too, so look after it please. A small slab of marble wouldn't look astray on top either, and as its at eye level none of this really matters.

This is a genuine antique piece of furniture that would look equally at home in an English Regency , French Empire or even Biedermeier interior.
