Hand-crafted from exotic imported mahogany, then fitted with a luxuriously veined marble top, this commode is the essence of understated luxury! Half-columns form the cornerposts, and are fitted with cast bronze capitals and base caps. Cast bronze keyguards add a nice touch, all the while not detracting from the incredibly gorgeous wood.

The top drawer is not a drawer at all, but a drop-front desk that slides out over your lap for a comfortable-to-use secretary desk!
Circa 1850s.
