A George III Mahogany and Ormolu Mounted Commode.

England , circa 1760.

A superb George III mahogany and ormolu mounted serpentine commode in the manner of Ince and Mayhew. The well figured top with applied moulded edge over an arrangement of one long drawer over two short drawers over two further long, graduated oak lined cock-beaded drawers fitted with apparently their original ormolu rococo handles and escutcheons. The canted corners tapering downwards and mounted with ormolu trailing flowers surmounted by a beautifully rendered rams head. Standing on shaped bracket feet.

The ormolu mounts are characteristic of pieces made by William Ince & John Mayhew. The partnership was in business from 1759 until 1804. In the 1763, they published The Universal System of Household Furniture, dedicated to the Duke of Marlboroough, which contained around 300 designs for furniture and household effects.
