Scottish Field - - UP FRONT -

An exquisitel­y dec­o­rated 18th-cen­tury com­mode de­signed by renowned French cab­i­net maker An­dré-Charles Boulle is on dis­play at Bowhill House in the Scot­tish Bor­ders. The brass in­lay, ebony and tor­toise­shell em­bel­lish­ments have been re­moved, cleaned and re­paired, and a poor 19th cen­tury re­place­ment gilt-bronze mount has been re-cast to a qual­ity sim­i­lar to that of the orig­i­nal.
