Rare 18th Century Commode in Cocuswood & Cherry Wood

A very elegant, late 18th century French bow fronted commode of pleasant proportions in cherry and cocuswood.

Cocuswood (also sometimes spelled “coccuswood”) is one of the classic woods, one of the first exports from the West Indies to Europe. It is sometimes called Jamaican ebony.

Generally used for musical instruments, it is unusual to be used in larger pieces of furniture.
