Antique Victorian Inlaid Rosewood Pier Cabinet
A smart, elegant antique rosewood pier cabinet with inlays, gilt metal mounts and ebonised edging.
In good original condition this display cabinet retains the original hand drawn glass and sits on four turned feet. Within, the interior which has two shelves, has been given a refresh with F&B India Yellow.
Notably, this cabinet is made in rosewood (walnut was more commonly used) which further adds to its appeal.
These cabinets were originally intended for use in entrance halls, and drawing rooms where they stood between two windows, similar to a console table, with sculptures or artwork placed on the top, and fine decorative items dispayed within.
They still function wonderfully as display cabinets and also as bookcases.
