German Baroque Commode Made of Walnut Wood


A walnut wood Baroque commode from the Hessian state of Germany. A three-parted dresser with a wonderfully curved front. It is made of walnut wood and walnut-grain with a mirrored veneer on the cover plate. The locks are originals but the fittings, as well as the veneer on the cover plate were supplemented. The furniture type dresser emerged from the typical chest during the 17th century. The term “commode” comes from the French word “commode”, which translates as “comfortable” into English. This refers to the easier handling of the storage compared to a chest. Their ideal form – usually with three drawers, like found in this piece – founded the dresser mid-18th century.
