A Pair of French Commodes in the Louis XV Manner Constructed in mahogany, dressed with gilt bronze mounts, and having Languedoc Rouge marble platforms; rising from swept cabriole legs, mounted with scrolled gilt bronze toes, and foliate espagnolettes over, conjoined with shaped aprons; incorporating three shaped and lockable drawers, having panelled oak linings, set with foliate bronze handles and keyhole escutcheons; the sides are of shaped panelled form, and the marble platforms have thumbnail moulded edges. French, Circa 1890

This very French design of commode was utilised, somewhat modified, by Thomas Chippendale, appearing in his ‘Gentleman and Cabinet maker’s Director’ as a ‘French Commode Table’, and that design was drawn on by leading luminaries of the 18th century, as, for example, Ince & Mayhew, and the émigré Frenchman, Pierre Langlois.
