Catalogue Note

This commode is based on the celebrated kingwood medal cabinet supplied by the Royal cabinet-maker Antoine-Robert Gaudreaux (1682-1746) in 1738 for the Cabinet Intérieur of Louis XV at Versailles. The bronze mounts were modelled by the Slodtz brothers.

This particular model is of an extended form to the original. This version and the smaller model were popular in the nineteenth century amongst Parisian makers. A similar commode is illustrated by Christopher Payne, 19th Century European Furniture, Woodbridge, Suffolk, 1981, p.86, pl.147. A model sold, Christie's, London, September 27, 2007, lot 91 (£48,500) and another sold Sotheby's, New York, November 28, 2006, lot 353,  ($78,000).
