A handsome George III period mahogany and harewood marquetry inlaid bombe commode; the later marble top above four oak lined graduated drawers; each drawer is mounted with the original rococo handles and escutcheons and is decorated with geometric panels of harewood inlaid with a trellis design in boxwood flanking a central panel inlaid with flowers; raised on swept bracket feet. The ends of the commode are decorated with a panel of harewood inlaid with a trellis design and centred by an urn set within a rococo cartouche. Retaining the original ormolu mounts to the front corners of a female term with a rocaille collar and an ormolu rococo cartouche to the shaped apron.

The construction of this commode is typically English but the decoration is quite unusual. The trellis design suggests the work of an emigre Scandinavian cabinet-maker as this is a typical motif of Northern European furniture. The most prominent Scandinavian cabinet-makers in Georgian London were Christopher Fuhrlog and George Haupt.
