Early Louis XV kingwood and amaranth parquetry commode signed by Peridiez with fine ormoulu mounts, marked with the C couronné. The longer than usual commode has two short drawers over one full drawer. The commode is fitted with very fine voluted ormolu handles, keyhole escutcheons, ormolu apron mount, chutes and sabots with excellent chasing and original gilding. Unusually, there is a chute over the back leg. The commode has its original serpentine brèche d'Alep marble top.
The “C Couronné” poinçon (Crowned C) was a tax mark struck on any alloy incorporating copper, produced or offered for sale between March 1745 and February 1749.
