A fine George III mahogany serpentine commode in the manner of Thomas Chippendale, of excellent colour and patina. The serpentine fronted top, with moulded edge, over a retractable brushing slide and four long graduated, cock-beaded, oak lined drawers fitted with original gilt brass handles. The base with a moulded lower edge and shaped bracket feet.

Of particular note is the deep serpentine shape to the front and quality of construction throughout.

This form of chest of drawers with an elegant serpentine and moulded top on a rectilinear chest relates to that of others supplied by Thomas Chippendale, including at Mersham-le-Hatch, Kent, in 1768 and at Paxton House, Berwickshire, in 1774. The red wash on the underside and laminated blocks to the feet is a characteristic feature of a number of pieces of mahogany furniture at Dumfries House, Ayrshire, which were attributed to ‘The Dumfries House Cabinet-Maker’ - possibly Thomas Chippendale.
Excellent. Minor old restorations, waxing. Brassware and feet believed to be original.
