For this spectacular cabinet on stand to have survived in such an untouched and original condition is remarkable. At the time the cabinet was created there was strong interest in naturalistic ornament on both sides of the channel following the restoration of King Charles II. Thomas Pistor was amongst the few London cabinet-makers supplying furniture decorated with floral marquetry of the very highest quality. The style and handling of this piece has strong affinities with furniture supplied by Pistor to Levens Hall in Cumbria in the late 17th Century, and it is highly likely that this piece came from his workshop.
