English circa 1770
23 1/2" deep

Sold Bonhams, New Bond Street, London, 2007.
Haughton Castle, Hexham, purchased by the vendor's grandfather at the 1905 Haughton Castle sale.
The design of this commode has close similarities to the work of the London cabinet-maker John Cobb(1715-78). Cobb often chose to adopt the French technique of making the lower drawer of his commodes form part of the shaped apron, rather than the English manner which incorporated the apron as part of the carcase. A similar commode is seen illustrated in M. Harris & Sons 1868-1968, page 118.
