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[1]. 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. For a further example, see Sotheby’s New York, Tom Devenish: The Collection, 24 April 2008, lot 67.
