A very fine and rare George III kingwood bombé commode attributed to John Cobb. The top cross-banded in rosewood and centred by an oval panel of amboyna on a quarter-veneered ground, with three similarly veneered drawers, the corners, apron, and feet with fine ormolu mounts.

In the French taste, with its richly figured quarter-veneered top, with ormolu mounts and boldly drawn cabriole form, this rare commode can be confidently attributed to John Cobb.

The use of kingwood is extremely rare in mid 18th century English furniture, although it was particularly popular in France at this time.

An identical pair of commodes were sold from the collections previously at Stowe House, Buckinghamshire. This pair of commodes was almost certainly supplied to George Grenville, Marquess of Buckingham (1755-1813) and thence passed through the family by descent (sold Sotheby’s London, Treasures, 6 July 2016, lot 35).
