Commode (Chest of Drawers) (one of two)
Hillwood Mansion, Dining Room
Wood marquetry, gilt metal
H. 40 3/4 in., W. 53 1/2 in., D. 25 1/2 in.
Panels of veneered marquetry enliven the sides and top of this commode and its companion. The rococo cartouches that frame the troubadour scenes and the contrasting veneers cut in diverging direction invest the piece with a dynamism typical of Italian furniture of the mid-eighteenth century.
Bequest of Marjorie Merriweather Post, 1973
