This cabinet belongs to a very similar group of cabinets by Diehl with minor variations in, for example, the woods employed or the mounts. Two such examples of almost identical cabinets which were unsigned but attributed to Diehl that have sold include:

Diehl was a highly respected cabinet maker of the 19th Century. He was born in Germany and moved to Paris in 1840 where he established a very large workshop with around 600 employees by 1870. He participated in the Great Exhibition in London 1851 and in all the major international exhibitions during the middle of the 19th Century thereafter. Diehl officially became a French citizen in 1872. His works can be found in many important collections and institutions worldwide including the Musée d'Orsay, Paris and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, among others.
