A mid-eighteenth century walnut commode, the serpentine overhanging top upon two short and two long drawers with incised paneling and set with finely chased foliate brass handles and lock escutcheons, the whole raised on shaped feet.

This piece was made during the reign of Louis XV of France (1715-1774), its serpentine form relating to the shapely forms of the rococo period. However, the foliate castings of the brass handles and the cartouche locks have a classical aspect which heralds the reign of Louis XVI (1774-1792).
