Biedermeier Nut Wood Writing Commode, Austria, circa 1830


We proudly present to you this outstanding Biedermeier writing commode from Austria, circa 1830 coming fresh out of our restoration workshop. Showing an absolute amazing veneer pattern, this four drawer chest is a real quick-change artist - the three big lower drawers provide a lot of storage room and the top drawer transforms into a fully functional writing desk! Just open the top drawer and unlock the fold down writing surface (see picture No 4) veneered in beautiful cherrywood. Inside there are another five narrow birds-eye maple veneered drawers and a compartment. Embossed brass fittings and a fine hand-polished shellac finish complete this masterpiece. Like every item at Masterpiece Antiques, this Biedermeier chest of drawers comes in absolute perfect restored condition.
