A Dutch Transition Commode with Marquetry, ca. 1775 - A Dutch commode in a simple design, with two doors in the front. The marble top follows the contours of the object, after the example of the French commodes of the day. This object marks the transition from Rococo to Classicism. The “bulged” forms typical for the 1760-1770 period have disappeared, but the cabriole legs with firegilt bronze fittings still remind of the Rococo.
