oak (wood), h 89.5cm × w 158.5cm × d 68.5cm. More details

This commode is veneered with panels of lacquer removed from a piece of Chinese furniture, probably a screen or chest. Bending the lacquer so that it could be adhered to the curved surface of the commode was not easy. The commode is an example of chinoiserie, a European style that incorporated Chinese materials and motifs. The gilt-bronze mounts are devoid of Chinese elements.

On display in room 1.4-03
