The French Bombe Commode is a really specific piece of French furniture and its French design dates back to the 17th Century. A 'Bombe' chest really does show us true elegance and refinement and the word itself comes from the French word meaning "curved". Bombe chests bulge outwards at the front and on each side and then curve back in at the base.
This particular painted Bombe Commode also enjoys highly 'Ormolu' decoration on the sides, legs and handles; what is a beautiful gilt bronzing technique which used to be with gold.
A 2 drawer Bombe Commode, such as this, will sit beautifully in a bedroom, hallway, lounge or even in a bathroom. It is such a versatile piece of furniture.
This Commode has been painted some considerable time previously. The painted wood has a lovely patina, colouring and can look 'weathered, toned, timeworn' and is a feature of this piece of furniture.
