A spectacular French 19th century Napoleon III period Boulle ebony cabinet vitrine with ormolu and Pietra Dura mounts. This impressive cabinet is raised on six bun feet with ormolu bands. At the straight and scalloped frieze are striking foliate ormolu mounts flanked by rosettes blocks all below a finely chased ormolu band. The two side doors retain the original hand blown glass within ormolu borders, and all with ormolu keyhole escutcheons. The central door displays remarkable Pietra Dura designs of berries, fruits and flowers amidst branches with a bird at the center. These designs are framed in rich ormolu bands with a ruban noué above. Each door is flanked by columns with richly chased foliate ormolu mounts at the base, ormolu rosettes at the center and fluted scrolled plinth designs at the top. The doors open to reveal two interior shelves that lay the whole width of the cabinet. At the top apron is an intertwined pierced ormolu geometric band with faux tortoise shell backplate. The border of the mottled top displays brass inlays below the polished top.
