Combining the talents of four master artisans, the timeless bombe commode has enjoyed a following for well over two centuries. First, the case must be created with complex three dimensional curves in its façade. Next, the specialist employs age-old techniques to adorn the exterior with veneering and marquetry designs. Then, the metalsmith creates bronze mounts of the perfect curvature to enhance the form, and finally the stone mason contours and bevels a choice piece of marble for a fitting top.
Circa 1890s.
