19th Century Dutch Empire Period Ebonized Commode.  The ebonizing process was a painstaking, laborious process that impregnated the very pores of the wood to simulate the highly exotic, rare and extremely expensive ebony wood still available at the time, so enterprising French furniture makers simulated it then applied French polish plus classic French bordering incised into the wood and accented with gold for an even more timeless, classic effect. 

Circa 1815
