England, circa 1765
A magnificent George III sabicu and kingwood ormolu mounted serpentine commode, in the French taste, attributed to Henry Hill of Marlborough.
The serpentine top cross-banded with kingwood and a kingwood moulded border frame around central panels of book-matched sabicu veneers, above three graduated serpentine drawers similar veneered in sabicu with kingwood detailing and cross-banding.
Each drawer with its original ormolu foliate handles; the leading corners of the commode similarly mounted in outstanding ormolu corner mounts leading down to scrolls on the outswept feet.
Superb colour throughout.
