Cupboard - Renaissance Style - Oak and rosewood - Late 18th century

Dutch cabinet, between 1770 and 1795.
During this period, there was a great deal of interest and nostalgia in our country for the
Golden Age, the time when the Netherlands was the richest country in the world.
In this day and age we made furniture in Renaissance style - it is baroque, but understated. So at the end of the 18th century we made furniture that was inspired by this. It is therefore called Neo-Renaissance.
As counterpart also of the then dominant French styles.
Not much later, France would annex our country.

Beautiful fluting, in the lower cabinet a wide drawer behind the doors.
Original key included.

Four doors.
Oak and rosewood with a beautiful patina.
The cabinet has a lower and upper cabinet.
A nice small size.
See also the beautiful carving at the legs.
