Assembled Pair of Italian Neoclassical Marble-Top Small Commodes, circa 1810

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

These two-drawer commodes appear to have been made in the same cabinet shop, but there are slight differences in the veneer designs. Also the marble tops, while similar in color, do not match. As is often the case with pieces of this type, the patina is greatly enhanced by the signs of age on each commode, particularly the slight buckling of veneer on the sides. The drawers are lined with very old wallpaper which can be removed if requested. We will consider offers to buy one commode separately.
