An Important and Extremely Rare Louis XV Style Gilt-Bronze Mounted Tulipwood Bombe Vitrine By Maison Krieger.

This exceptional vitrine has a spreading pediment centred by a finely cast gilt-bronze stylised fleur de lys, acanthus, ‘C’-scroll and foliate cresting, above a glazed bombé central door and concave sides. The silk lined interior is fitted with adjustable shelves and the angles headed by superb gilt-bronze figural espagnolettes. The lower section of the vitrine is mounted with foliate garlands and raised on cabriole legs with acanthus clasps and feet.

The fine proportions and the exceptional quality of the gilt-bronze mounts, make this vitrine highly desirable.
