ANTIQUES: WALNUT COMMODE




The commode above is typical of those found in Northern Italy around the late 17th, early 18th century and is one of our favourite pieces out there. Details include a rectangular moulded top which sits above a frieze depicting Vitruvian Scrolls and lozenge, diamond shapes, details are equally positioned on the three drawers with the unit sitting on bun feet. The top piece was sold through Christies and looks remarkably similar to that of Axel Vervoordt's in his Venitian Palazzo. For those in the know, these kind of pieces aren't something one comes across on a regular basis and we really wouldn't be surprised if it were the same piece.
