The Diana and Minerva Commode, made in 1773 for Edwin Lascelles of Harewood.  It depicts the 2 Roman goddesses, Diana and Minerva, in marquetry (inlaid timbers) and ivory on its doors. They are looking towards each other as pair would be placed. It is good to stress that a pair is not 2 the same but two mirrored images.

1771-1773 British Commode at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - From the curators' comments: "Formerly at St. Gile's House, Dorset, this commode has been attributed to several London cabinetmakers, including Chippendale, but its maker remains unknown. The top, a modern replacement, was originally veneered with pictorial marquetry."

The arms are those of the Stuart sovereigns: James I, Charles I, Charles II, and James II. For stylistic reasons, this panel is dated between 1660 (beginning of the reign of Charles II) and 1688 (end of the reign of James II)
