Description
An exhibition quality 19th Century ormolu mounted amboyna and ebony shaped side cabinet on tapering legs circa 1860. This superb cabinet being finely decorated with ebony beading and stringing having a raised upper section with a pierced brass gallery surround above a pair of amboyna veneered and ebony inlaid doors which open to reveal a fitted shelved interior. Each door having a recessed panelled edge with ebony surround flanked by a pair of bowed doors being pleated fabric lined and brass grilled which again open to a shelved interior. The lower section having a central ormolu mounted frieze mahogany lined drawer flanked by two bow-shaped drawers each being hinged to the sides. Below which are a pair of recessed glazed doors and baize-lined pull-out slide with gilt knob handles above a shaped apron. To either side of the recess are tapering turned columns decoratively inlaid with ebony stringing having a pair of conforming cupboards in-between another pair of identical columns. The whole standing on finely turned and tapering legs decorated with ebony inlay. Offered in excellent condition having been gently restored using traditional methods and supplied with a working key. The quality of this cabinet is not to be underestimated and although unsigned would have been made by one of the finest Victorian cabinet makers, most probably the likes of Gillows or Lamb of Manchester. This is an extremely fine, very rare and of exhibition quality cabinet that will grace any home. The veneer used is amboyna which is normally only used as an inlay or for decorative panels on furniture due to it being such a rare and expensive exotic wood. The name is derived from Ambon Island in Indonesia, where much of the figured wood is believed to have been initially exported. Amboyna is still among the most expensive and sought-after of all burl woods today. This cabinet comes apart in two sections for ease of transport.
