A closely related commode of serpentine form with canted angles, and oval patera inlaid top is labelled by the St Paul's Churchyard cabinet-maker, Henry Kettle (C. Gilbert, Pictorial Dictionary of Marked London Furniture 1700-1840, Leeds, 1996, p. 289, fig. 544). Henry Kettle moved into Philip Bell's premises at No. 23 St Paul's Churchyard in about 1774.
