A Large 17th Century North Italian Walnut Commode

An unusually large 17th-century North Italian solid walnut commode with canted corners.  Featuring four long graduated drawers, three of which display molded front panels to the rim of the drawers.

Each drawer displays a pair of brass Sun handles with matching escutcheon, both of which have been subtly engraved creating an additional dimension to the already exceptionally unique piece. This chest of drawers is raised on a lower plinth with bracket feet, both of which have been elegantly shaped in a scroll-like manner.
The age of this commode becomes apparent when looking at the internal composition, the oversized hand-hewn panels of ancient walnut that form the framework of this piece are both extremely large in dimension and exceptionally thick - highlighting the workmanship that would have gone into composing such an article, while also bearing in mind the volume of exotic wood used to create such a designer like antique. The sheer size of this commode can't help but ooze grandeur while also creating a great sense of individuality, a rare artifact that truly is one of a kind.

Pappilon is a Mother and Daughter collaboration of ideas spanning 'some' decades of new and old.  Both having a fascination with interiors and art we like to think we have a unique style and taste where we select individual pieces for their own stand-alone worth and value and like family, it is a growing family of ideas that makes us love what we do.

We feel that antiques which have withstood the test of time relate to a quality found in craftsmanship most often lost in today's modern age. This doesn't simply mean we stick with the old but the ethos of what we stand for is that even antiques for the future should have a consideration to its longevity and quality as well as its style.

We source pre-loved and sometimes tired pieces of furniture and items from many locations around the UK and in and around Europe. We lovingly restore each piece and sympathetically bring it back to life either by injecting it into the 21st century or restoring it back to its original state.
