This classical and versatile French 18th Century Oak Commode with all Original Decorative Brass Handles and Escutcheons has lovely proportions and offers capacious storage, making it wonderfully functional after over 200 years of service.  It was hand-crafted during the post Louis XVI period using rudimentary tools from solid, old-growth French oak and created to last for centuries as can be seen.  It is in good condition, fully restored, ready for another 200 plus years of daily use.  It has been later hand painted in lovely soft tones by a true craftsman with a Specialist Antique Stone White Patinated Finish. 

The commode is a joy to behold with the two smaller carved drawers over three larger carved drawers; the main body has rounded corners with the further detail of canted corners.  The commode has a beautiful scallop shaped apron with carved details resting on scroll shaped legs.

This marvellously elegant decorative piece offers form and function with its storage and will fit well into most positions as it is not to overly large or restrictive on where you might be able to place it. It will enhance the décor of any room in the house be it in an entry hall, bedroom or other living room.
