George was reliant on several agents to travel to France and buy works of furniture on his behalf. His French confectioner, François Benois, was able to visit Paris even during the travel restrictions imposed by the Napoleonic wars. Benois bought porcelain, sculpture and items of furniture for Carlton House, among them this elegant commode which was placed in an ante-chamber alongside George’s bedroom.

Purchased in 1821
