Dutch Baroque cabinet around 1650 of very high quality.
A cabinet like this is very architectural, also reminds of Dutch canal houses.
During this period, the Netherlands was the richest country in the world and the money was for the most part
not in the hands of the Crown or Church but in those of the Merchants. That was unique. And economically beneficial and healthy.
Actually the most modern country as well, the first republic (with a lot of problem-solving) and we had the first financial Stock Exchange.
Unique was also that most of the population lived in cities.
They had furniture made at top level as monarchs here and and elsewhere used to do.
Quarter-sawn oak, expensive ebony and rosewood alternate each other.
Deep bombé, those long vertical bombé parts are really Dutch, the front lined with rosewood.
Two drawers with 'robbe' frames in the top - those black frames with scallops, and one large drawer in the bottom.
And a very easily applicable size of only 151 cm high.
