The lighting isn't the greatest in these pics, sorry.
I got this piece for a really great price, as the previous owner was moving and needed to sell. So far, all I can find out about this one is that it is likely French Louis XV style marble top commode. I have no idea if it is a replica or authentic, although I do know that the marble top is definitely marble. There is no stamp or tag that I can see on this piece. I would love to know more about it!

    Appears to be a modern "in the style of".

    Some additional photos-- back, bottom and drawer interior (joints) may help to confirm.

    That is what I was thinking as well, but wanted to confirm as I'm definitely no expert. I will take some extra pics and post them in a bit. Thanks!

    I added some extra pictures of the drawer joints (dovetail) and the back and the underside (by the legs) of the commode. I'm going to try to get some better lighting so that I can look for a stamp.

    I am very surprised-- it has some real age to it!

    Looks to be quality made with wood joints and earlier construction than I expected.

    I'd put this at the late 19th/ very early 20th century.

    Really?! That is awesome news! I've been hunting online trying to find similar styling and detail and there are just so many! Lol
