High-quality courtly Baroque commode - Brunswick, around 1740
Nut and veneered nut wood with strap inlays in plum wood and complexly brand-shaded ivory inlays with its original interior drawing. On the pompous bronze fittings of the drawers and the lateral handles, rests of the gilding are preserved. The large cartridge of the plate shows between stylistic tendrils a back to back sitting, playing couple with sheets of music and flutes. The elegant proportions of the furniture with the inward curved front and the high quality of the inlays are typical features of courtly furniture from Brunswick.
