Items like this were originally made as chocolate boxes by French manufacturers, but they make charming furnishings for Lady dolls in our collections today, don't they? This example is modeled upon a boulle commode with a single drawer. It is made of molded card stock that has been overlaid with printed paper in imitation of the fine veneered furniture of the period. The feet are stamped brass, and a ring forms the handle to open the drawer. The paper lining the inside is printed to imitate fine mahogany.. In a vignette with your French fashion dolls, it would form a lovely low commode to hold various accessories, and to display other miniatures or perhaps function as a perch for a Salon pet for them.

The commode is in good antique condition, with a few bumps to the papered exterior, bending to the feet (though it sits evenly on a surface), wear around the ring handle, and a small piece of brass ornament missing on the lower front. An area on the bottom of the box shows a spot where a label has been removed at some time in the past. A lovely item!
