An extremely fine mid-18th century Chippendale period serpentine commode, the shaped top with a moulded
edge above four graduated drawers, with pierced brass handles and escutcheons, and finely scrolling foliated
carved chamfered front corners, raised on shaped bracket feet.
As this commode is of such fine quality, it is likely to have been made by either William
Hallett, William Vile or John Bradburn, all of whom were engaged in making for the
Royal family. The Garvan commode, illustrated in Hotspur 80 years of Antique Dealing Pg
201, is attributed to William Hallett and has similar carvings on the chamfered front
corners. A considerable amount of furniture has over the years been attributed to William
Vile, but as he published no designs, nor are any original drawings by him known, it is not
possible to make a firm attribution.
Height 81.00 cm (31.89 inches)

Depth 61.00 cm (24.02 inches)
