Object Description

Crafted during the early reign of Queen Victoria, this mid-19th Century English side cabinet is designed with a meandering, curvilinear profile. Adding to the beauty of its shape, the cabinet is ornamented extensively with fine marquetry and set with a host of porcelain and gilt bronze mounts.

The front of the cabinet is defined by one central blind door and two flanking glazed doors. The central door, the front of which is richly detailed with marquetry and inset to the centre with a painted porcelain plaque, opens to one-shelf cabinet. The side doors, both glazed, open to two-door cabinets.

The rails above and below the three doors feature further marquetry inlays and are mounted with beautifully ornate gilt bronze elements. Additionally, the top rail is inset with three porcelain plaques—painted, like the one on the central door, with bouquets. The top of the cabinet is decked with beautiful marquetry in keeping with the rest of the piece.
