The commode belongs to a group of almost identical outline, with the same unusual brass husk handles. The veneers used are generally of the finest quality, with relatively sparse use of brass mounts. The outline is of French origin, suggesting a cabinet-maker who had either worked in France for some time or had worked with a French cabinet-maker in England. Recorded examples include one made for the Duke of Norfolk for Norfolk House, London, and another, now in a private collection in São Paulo, is illustrated in 18th Century English Furniture: The Norman Adams Collection.

The commode retains all the original brass handles and mounts.
Private collection, USA.
