Marie Leszczynska's Commode

Bernard van Risen Burgh is the master behind this commode which entered into Queen Marie Leszczynska's possession in 1737. It was placed in the Queen's private cabinet at the royal palace of Fontainebleau. The commode is made of oak and adorned with Japanese lacquer and gilded bronze; the top is of so-called d'Antin marble.
The commode is currently at the Louvre to whom the credits for the photos belong.
