Circa 1860, exhibition quality Victorian burr walnut and inlaid credenza. The top has wonderfully selected burr walnut veneers and has a simple boxwood inlay on the fore edge. The moulded fore edge follows the shape of the credenza and has excellent colour. Below this is a simple frieze which has marquetry inlay and this runs all the way around the credenza. There is a stylish beading below this and one large door which is a cornucopia of inlays, burr walnuts, geometric patterns and in the centre is a wonderful gilt brass mounted sevres plaque depicting 2 cherubs. There are curved pilasters on each side of the door with capitols and spirally ebonised inlay. Each end of the credenza has bow fronted glass which is again framed in a stylised brass bezel. There is moulding at the bottom and the whole piece stands on a plinth with a stylish apron. Wonderful neat size Victorian credenza.
Size 107cm high x 132cm wide x 39cm deep.
