Table Cabinet

Bavaria, Augsburg, c.1670

Marquetry on European Walnut. Top o' the line cabinet with drawers. The marquetry heaving with baroque scrolls and foliage joining paired lions and phoenixes on the drawers, top and ends. The phoenix stood for eternal life and the lion for imperviousness to attack. The lion is the symbol of Bavaria. In its day, the cabinet would have celebrated to power and resilience of Augsburg: today it is just stunningly beautiful. Oh, and you can use it, too! Small losses to marquetry (the ground not the design.), otherwise good condition, no restoration.
