This antique French cabinet features intricate Boulle-style brass and tortoiseshell marquetry and is mounted with fine ormolu decorations. It is built from ebonised wood, takes a rectangular shape and is set on four cylindrical feet. The base of the cabinet features ormolu flower decorations to the corners and a brass and tortoiseshell marquetry panel to the front. The front of the cabinet contains a large central cabinet door, the exterior of which is decorated with Boulle marquetry, mounted with an ormolu head, and set within an ormolu border. The door opens to reveal an interior of ebonised wood with one shelf. Rectangular marquetry arabesque frieze panels sit at each side of the door to the front of the cabinet, and above each there is an ormolu crowned head. Between the two heads there is a further rectangular Boulle marquetry panel. The sides of the cabinet are decorated in a similar fashion, but with contre-partie marquetry (tortoiseshell inlaid in brass) rather than premiere-partie (brass inlaid in tortoiseshell). The whole cabinet is topped with black marble. This Baroque style piece is extremely finely detailed and of exceptional quality.
