Giuseppe Maggiolini Style Commode, 19th century
This exceptional 19th century Giuseppe Maggiolini style commode is a beautiful example for the craftsmanship of antique Italian furniture. The commode stands out for its exquisite marquetry in kingwood, rosewood and satinwood. Roman antique design language inspires the various marquetry motifs on top side and front. The marquetry medallions on front and sides depict the Roman gods and goddess: Apollo, Mars and Venus.
Giuseppe Maggiolini was a marquetry-maker (intarsiatore) and cabinet-maker(ebanista) in Milan in the later 18th century. Though some of his early work is Late Baroque in manner, his name is particularly associated with blocky neoclassical forms veneered with richly detailed marquetry vignettes, often within complicated borders.
The commode measures 35,43 x 47.24 x 23.23 inches. It comes refinished and French polished and the brass fittings are original. It ships from Germany and includes shipping costs to Boston.
