A Dutch serpentine three-drawer commode from the mid-18th century, with original painted finish. Born in the Netherlands during the 1740s, this three-drawer commode features a planked top with rounded edges, adopting the serpentine shape taken by the three drawers below. Each drawer, combining concave and convex lines, is simply adorned with a painted hardware flanking a central oval escutcheon. This commode features its original finish made of a soft color that compliments the purity of the lines beautifully and is raised on four bun feet whose darker shade presents a discreet contrast with the ensemble. With its graceful serpentine lines and nicely weathered finish, this Dutch commode circa 1740 will bring a touch of relaxed elegance to any home, whether placed in a bedroom or living room.
