A very nice Louis XVI adult commode or potty chair which looks to be made of a combination of Birch and either Apple or Pear wood. A fancy commode chair as this one most likely belonged to a very well to do family in France in the last quarter of the 18th Century. This chair has nicely detailed carving on the legs and finely carved scroll work at the ends of the upholstery padded arms. Very warm aged color and patina.
Condition: Very old refinish has been cleaned and waxed, some old repairs to the left front leg that are tight. The canning on the back was replaced at some point in it’s life. Nice tight frame. The usual age marks for a piece of this period.
