Antique Painted Commode from Italy, 19th Century

This antique Italian commode has fabulous outdoor scenes painted depicting fashionably attired monkeys and landscapes.  They are playing instruments under a tree with mountains and a body of water behind them.  Two birds are in the tree taking part in the instrumental session. Stylized painted faux marble is on the top of the commode while the front of the commode has two drawers with one continuous, painted scene.  Each of the side panels are also painted with scenes of monkeys and landscapes. All of these scenes are framed by a linear painted border with canted corners. The side supports on the front are angled and all four legs are slightly curved.

Overall, the commode has wonderful soft coloration and a very desirable wear throughout. Painted furniture has been in favor in Italy ever since the middle ages, and this Italian commode from the 19th century will be perfect for any area of the home.

CONDITION:  Good condition with chips and losses to paint as seen in photos.
