Early 19thC c1800 -1810 Directoire / Louis XVI style walnut commode.
Three large drawers
Original black and white marble top and brass fittings.
Walnut with oak lined drawers. The walnut would have originally been bleached to lighten the colour, as the fashion was for Satinwood furniture at this time. Satinwood however was very expensive and used mainly in England, where cabinet makers had better access via the colonies. The colour has now after 200 years darkened to a richer amber tone.
