Description / Expertise

Attributed to Ince & Mayhew a George III marquetry padouk-wood and mahogany serpentine commode, having a curved back to the top. The single fitted frieze drawer with a ratcheted mirror and various lidded compartments, sits above cupboard doors opening to reveal three long drawers.
Raised on concealed castors the distinctive profile of the present commode places it firmly among a group of commodes attributed to the Golden Square firm Mayhew and Ince. The serpentine form, shallow frieze drawer, rounded corners and bracket feet, deeply etched foliate decoration all feature on other examples long associated to
Mayhew and Ince. English circa 1770.
