One commode is fitted with three drawers retaining the original Dutch axe handles, the other with a fixed shelf.

The pair have been separated for a considerable time, and we have been very fortunate to be able to bring them together once again.

Chippendale produced very few demi-lune commodes. Apart from this pair, the only examples known to exist are one recorded from Denton Hall, Yorkshire, now in the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, USA, and two unrecorded in a private collection in England.
