A lovely original 18th century bombe commode made from cherry with a fabulous colour.

This elegant chest of drawers was made in France by a skilled cabinet maker in c.1780

This will light up any room and is stunningly attractive yet a completely robust and practical chest suitable for function and use.

Beautiful graduated and shapely form with corresponding S shaped drawers and lovely gilded brass original handles with matching original escutcheons.

With a finely carved and well shaped apron with laurel wreath and all set on original and substantial feathered griffin feet.

Particularly beautiful overhung top with scalloped and moulded edge and the whole in very good condition throughout with no later timbers and no wood worm. Minor shrinkage to the side panel timbers which is long since stable and not going anywhere, small marks and tiny nibbles to consistent with age and use.

A beautiful example, rarely found in such original condition and in a fine quality fruitwood.

From a local Sussex estate with some provenance.
