A Rare Dutch Burl Walnut Sarcophagus Commode. All of the crisply carved elements (the feet, acanthus leaf corners, and center shell) are executed in boxwood. The quarter-veneered and hinged top is outlined by cross-banding which in turn surrounds an inlaid band of boxwood. While the bombé shape of the case identifies this piece as Dutch, there are a number of other influences present in this lovely Rococo hybrid.
