R.J. Baarsen, French Furniture in Amsterdam, in Furniture History XXIX, 1993, pp. 114-128.
Reiner Baarsen, Oud Holland, Uitgave van het Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistorische Documentatie, Published by the Netherlands Institute for Art History, Volume 107, 1993, no. 2., p. 206, no. 42, illustrates a related Dutch commode commode with two doors stated to be Den Haag and similar strapwork reserves in dark wood on a light ground.
The finely executed trelliswork parquetry framed by lyre-shaped reserves are typical of Dutch commodes in the Louis XV manner which were produced in the 1760's and 1770's. This commode is reminiscent of the style of commode being produced around this time by makers such as Matthijs Horrix. A commode by Horrix with two doors and trelliswork parquetry with an identical escutcheon and handle mounts, is illustrated by Baarsen, op. cit., p. 184, no. 8 (Huis ten Bosch, Palace).
A commode attributed to Horrix with two doors and an identical apron mounts was offered for sale Sotheby's Amsterdam, 21st November 2007, lot 10.
Also see a commode with identical escutcheons, apron and corner mounts sold from the `A celebration of Hotspur and Jeremy', Christie's, London, 20th November 2008, lot 75.
