This beautiful early 20th Century display cabinet is wrought from giltwood, gilt-metal, glass, and mirror. The cabinet is rectangular in shape with canted corners on each of the two front sides. Supported by six tapered and fluted legs, the cabinet contains two glass shelves, which are accessible through the angled doors. The cabinet is glazed on all sides—except the bottom, which is mirrored. The piece is beautifully finished, including fine detailing such as acanthus-leaf form motifs below the body of the cabinet. Minimalist in design, the cabinet is sure to display its contents to their very best.
