Beautiful French four-door cabinet.
Walnut with a beautiful patina.
Very expertly executed putti heads and acanthus vines, see close-ups.
The angel heads have a very expressive look.
They have the expression not of children but of adolescents.
Very artfully done.
The cabinet consists of two stackable pieces.
Nice, easy-to-place low size of 183 cm high.
The back has very heavy backboards.
On top of the back an old label which tells us that the cabinet was in England in the 19th century.
Dunn's Depository in Kent, a company that carried out removals and furniture transports and storage - founded in 1880. This cabinet went to England as an antique 200 years ago and from there to the Netherlands.
I opened the lock because there's no key.
