Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Large cabinets for storing collections were quite common in The Netherlands in the 18th century. The monumental, severe appearance is appropiate to the serious character of this kind of collection, moreover an exclusively male occupation.
This Cabinet is mentioned in: Cornelis Ploos van Amstel 1726-1798, Kunstverzamelaar en prentuitgever (fig. 21) as a very monumental artcabinet.
A similar cabinet, though larger and with different carved decoration, is in the Rijksmuseum of Amsterdam.
