Italian Neo-Classical Parquetry Commode
H: 152cm (59.8")W: 93cm (36.6")D: 46cm (18.1")
An Italian 19th century walnut parquetry commode in the 18th century neo-classical style, fitted with six drawers with inlaid parquetry borders and pierced brass key escutcheons, the top with moulded edge and with similarly inlaid side panels, the drawers lined in 19th century star decorated paper.
A very elegant looking chest. The right hand side has an old crack near the back edge which has been filled some time ago but would benefit from some attention. There is some chipping to the veneer in the odd place, such as drawer corners. I could arrange to have these replaced by a furniture restorer if required.
