This interesting commode is clearly related to a similar documented pair of 'Exceeding Rich Mahog. Commodes of fine wood & wrought ornaments on Casters £45.' supplied to the Mansion House, London in 1752, for use in the State Bedroom. Ordered from the London cabinetmakers William Kiplin, William Chesson and Paul Saunders, they were part of an extensive commission, the three makers having formed a temporary partnership which appears to have terminated in 1757.
