Valuables Cabinet

Dutch, c.1700

Oak, walnut banding and maple(?) inlay on door. What hits you first is its powerful crest (composed of six molded boards.) Then its size, it's larger than most, but then, you have more valuables… Stand it on the floor or on a table. Ten interior drawers around a pigeon hole (we've always wondered what these were for -- pigeons??) Double-arched, cock-beaded skirt with suppressed ball feet. The sides are five horizontal boards -- avoiding the cracking risk of a single vertical board. Everywhere you look, you see something to admire. Arched crest rail Inlaid door enclosing ten drawers Long drawer in base. Suppressed ball feet Feet replaced, minor patches, back patched, but overall good condition with original brass.

29" h x 22" w x 12-1/2" d.
