A Good George III Satinwood Serpentine Commode
Period: George III
A George III satinwood serpentine commode. Veneered in West Indian satinwood and with decorative rosewood cross bandings to the top and drawer fronts, the commode is low waisted, has shaped sides and stands on the original splay bracket feet. Of good quality and colour throughout.
Satinwood veneered commodes from the eighteenth century are rare and this is a very decent example. It has a lovely proportion and would have been a drawing room piece. It has been obtained from a private collection and by repute was formally the property of Lord Sefton of Liverpool.
