Very Rare 17th Century English Dutch Antwerp Cabinet - £2900

123

condition: excellent
delivery available
make/manufacturer: Very
model name/number: Rare 17th Century English

Cabinets of this period are pretty rare things to find for sale, as most are in big country houses or museums. But what makes this cabinet extremely rare, (although needing some restoration) is the fact it has an oak carcuss and has drawer linings with the original marbled papers.
However, this mega rare example is made in oak with ebony veneer, which reasonably concludes it was likely to have been made in England as apposed to being made in Holland, and that makes it an extremely rare cabinet indeed.
I understand it came from a Scottish Country Residence and was housed there for well over 250 years belonging to a very old family and was stored and simply forgotton about.
It has 12 secret drawers and would have originally had a mirror in the middle section of the lid.
Dimensions:
Height approx 62cm
Width at base approx 71cm
Depth at base approx 43cm
Weight approx 40kg
