Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
On an elaborately carved and silvered stand with a foliate lip above a pierced foliate apron centred by a blind cartouche with putti supports with scallop shells to the sides, all supported on canted acanthus enriched hipped scroll legs with outward scrolled toes.
Note: Cream or white japanning are the rarest colours to be found, and only a very small number of workshops managed to produce pieces in these hues. The patterns for the decoration were often traced from Chinese or Japanese import china of the period.
The extraordinary cabinet was exhibited alongside a cabinet with almost identical decoration at the Wallace Collection in London and also compares to one in the Lady Lever art Gallery in Port Sunlight, Liverpool. These three cabinets share the same construction and have almost identical japanned decoration, and all probably originate from the same workshop.
