The Dauphin's Commode

On 29 January 1748 this commode was delivered at the Dauphin's library at Versailles. It was the design of Mathieu Criaerd. Since the commode was sold off together with the other inventory during the revolution the commode had to be bought back as soon as it was located. The price: 12.000.000 dollars! It has now been placed in the very room where it was once delivered.
