Luxury Design, Past & Present
An elegant French cabinet with gilt bronze mounts, a drawer fitted in to the top of the case and a shelved interior below. The case is finely veneered in book matched kingwood, with further banding and stringing used to decorative effect. The doors frame matched serpentine shaped glass panels which are in turn bound with an ornamental cast and gilt band; the same band is found encircling the top of the cabinet. Ca. 1850-1870.
