Torsten Sylven, Marstarnas Möbler, Stockholm, 1996, p. 224, illustrates a virtually identical commode by the same maker, with a basket of fruit inlaid on the drawers.
He was born on 26th December 1739 and died on 31st August 1815. He is recorded as having been the apprentice of Friedrich Krauss in 1776. His Gustavian commodes have beautifully composed intarsia-decoration and he frequently used a very distinct rosette marquetry pattern, often centered by a basket of flowers in the middle drawer as on the present pair of commodes.
