Designed to be hung at the joining of two walls, this corner cabinet was hand-carved in the Netherlands, circa 1820. A wedge-shaped top, which can support a decorative accessory or small statue, overhangs the hand-painted main body that depicts a lovely classical scene.
Both doors of the bowed front cabinet have been transformed into a wood “canvas”, detailing a heavily bejeweled noble woman seeking an audience with royalty. Vibrant colors, such as dark turquoise, gold, and cream, dominate the scene, which is surrounded by a blue border. Various items of antiquity are scattered throughout the picture, including ordered columns, krater urns, and a red tasseled tabouret that supports the feet of the royal member on a throne. The doors open on a pair of pierced iron hinges to reveal a dark turquoise interior with two full shelves and a partial shelf near the top. An unusual hanging corner cabinet from the Netherlands that will add life to any kitchen, bathroom, or living room.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with light rubs and losses to paint. The top and the plinth have acceptable wood loss and age separations, both commensurate with age and use. Lock is functional and is operated by a single key. Please see photos for details.
