The lock stamped to the reverse 'DUVIVIER PARIS 77 FG-ST ANTOINE'.
This rare vitrine is surmounted by a large and finely carved putto figure holding a torch en flambeau, the corners with expressive espagnolettes, carved as female heads. The finely painted vernis Martin panels depict landscape scenes to the sides and to the central panel the goddess Juno seated in the clouds, holding a scepter and supported by a Peacock.
The serrurier Duvivier is known to have made fine locks for a number of the leading ébenistes of the late nineteenth century, including Maison Millet, Antoine Krieger and François Linke.
