The 'boxy' nature of the present commode is a characteristic of the firm that can be seen on other commodes executed by them. These include most notably the pair of Croome Court commodes supplied in 1764 to the 6th Earl of Coventry, the Douglas commode, circa 1773, now in the Lady Lever Art Gallery, and the pair of commodes at Burghley, supplied to the house in 1767 with a pair of corner cupboards en suite (L. Wood, Catalogue of Commodes, 1994, pp. 15, fig. 12; pp. 195-201, figs. i – x, and pp. 189-192). Other distinctive Mayhew & Ince features include the use of fine veneers, ebony stringing against a satinwood ground, the central fan medallion, fine foliate scroll marquetry, and the very idiosyncratic gilt-metal mounted feet.
