The Granny Mission Amish Three Drawer Commode will add a touch of nostalgia to any home. It also will make a great conversation piece!

In the genre of furniture that conjures memories of different places and/or time periods comes the Granny Mission Amish Three Drawer Commode. The unit from Weaver Furniture Sales in Shipshewana, Indiana, is reminiscent of commodes that existed in France, England and the US before the era of running water.

The Amish designers and builders of the commode included the key elements of commodes of an era passed. These features include a towel bar and a large, flat countertop – on which a washbasin and water jug were placed. Like the commodes of the 18th century, the Granny Mission commode has drawers and a door. However, this 21st century commode is not equipped with a chamber pot behind the door! A commode with a mirror and small towel rack is optional.

The Granny Mission Amish Three Drawer Commode will add a touch of nostalgia to any home. It also will make a great conversation piece. The commode will work superbly as an extra vanity in a master bedroom or guest room. Also, the harp-shaped towel bar is an ideal spot for placing a nice towel or displaying craft work.

As with most pieces offered by Weaver, the Granny Mission Amish Three Drawer Commode has some noteworthy convenience and reliability features. For example, all three drawers open full extension. So users can enjoy easy access to every corner of each drawer. Also, the Amish cabinetmakers constructed the upright joints of each drawer with dovetail joints. These joints are renown for strength and durability.

The commode’s Amish cabinetmakers are among the best in the Midwest. Also, they use quality regional hardwoods, such as oak, maple, cherry and hickory. Their Amish furniture builders also integrate tried-and-proven skills handed down from their ancestors. As a result, the commode is incredibly sturdy and durable. In fact, with proper care, it will easily become a family heirloom.
