Antique French Inlaid Marquetry Vitrine, Curio, China Cabinet. 19th C.
Exquisite antique French vitrine china, curio cabinet in the style of Louis XV and dating back to the late 1800's.
This stunning piece is just covered in fantastic inlaid marquetry of many different colorful woods with a musical instrument theme featured on the bottom of the door.
There are high quality, crisp ormolu embellishments accenting its sensuous lines and it still has the original working lock and key.
The heavily bowed front and sides are very unusual and the interior is still lined with the original velvet which shows wear but still looks great for its age.
Aside from wear to the velvet lining (which is only to be expected), this amazing piece is in excellent, original, complete condition. There is no damage to the wood or inlay, the ormolu is all intact and in excellent condition and the glass is in excellent shape also. It is structurally sound and very strong and sturdy.
This is such a rare find. It has a subtle elegance to it with unbelievable workmanship. I have never seen anything like it before and probably never will again!
Dimensions: Width 34", depth 18 1/4", maximum height 60 1/4".
