A George III period sycamore and marquetry neo-classical demi-lune commode

A very fine English demi-lune marquetry commode done in the “French style” having a white marble top over a sycamore veneered base with brass enrichments, the frieze decorated with husks and swags over a single central door, the base decorated with classical figures in panels draped with husks resting on vases. Attributed to the Swedish marquetry trade working in England in the 1770s and 1780s. It is likely this commode was made “on spec” by this trade who were essentially trying to enter the high-end cabinetmaking trade of this period dominated by the better known shops of Mayhew and Ince, Thomas Chippendale and Linnell.
