The overall design, choice of mounts and construction place this commode within the group of commodes identified as being attributed to the French émigré cabinet-maker Pierre Langlois (fl. 1759 – 81), working in London. Similar mounts can be seen on a pair of commodes, attributed to Langlois, which were supplied to the 1st Lord Digby at Sherborne Castle in the early 1760s. The corner mounts also compare to the pair supplied to Earl of Craven. The mounts on Langlois’s commodes are generally considered to have been made by his associate and brother-in-law, Dominique Jean, a French bronze caster and gilder first recorded as working in London is 1764.
