Antique Italian Maggiolini marquetry petite commode or comodino. Ca 1790.
Stamped 'Casa Offredi' to the underside.
A small late 18th century Italian walnut, fruitwood and palissander, neo-classical inlaid commode in the manner of Guiseppe Maggiolini, Milan.
Inset with the original Carrara marble top.
The inlaid door is located beneath a short working drawer.
All profusely and finely inlaid with complex scrolling arabesques typical of the style of Maggiolini.
Raised on inlaid tapering square legs.
These rare and highly functional petite commodes (or small 'chests') serve well as occasional/ lamp/ bedside tables to augment any elegant interior.

Nb. The quality of inlay of this small bedside table is typical of the work of Giuseppe Maggiolini, Milan (1738-1814).
This antique comodino would most probably have formed part of an en-suite ensemble with a marquetry commode similar to the one sold at Christies, lot 473 17th September 2013, for £35,000.
A closely related late 18th century Maggiolini petite commode was sold at Bonhams, Bond Street Gallery, on 25th June 2008 for £3600.00.

We have left the original Carrara marble top in place in spite of the fact that it has been broken, but expertly fixed in the past. It is rare for these commodes to retain their original marble tops. In our view this outweighs any decision to replace it.
