Beautiful two-door cabinet from the end of the 18th century, about 1780, about 250 years old. Compact and with three ball feet and nice and high on the legs.
Small low size.
The style is Dutch Baroque from the 17th century, (much more modest and Calvinist than the Southern Baroque) ) but then made out of renewed appreciation at the end of the 18th century.
During this period, the population longed for the greatness of 100 to 150 years ago. The Golden Age from 1600 to 1700.
At that time, the Netherlands was the richest country in the world and a leader.
Purely because of the business sense and shipbuilding of the people along the coast.
In the 18th century, the decline is partly due to the fact that business gave way to banking and shareholder status, making money with money.
This cabinet is made entirely in the style of around 1650, around 1770.
Although not directly visible to the layman. The cabinet now has a nice wear and an old and beautiful patina. But unlike the 17th century, thinner doors for example.
At the top of the hood drop-shaped figures, 'knobs'. From the Italian Renaissance, taken over as early as the 17th century and now re-displayed.
Beautiful fluting. Sophisticated profiling also in the stretchers and jambs.
Rosewood has been inlaid between the profiles in the jambs of the doors.
Old, now antique restorations at the back of the legs, see close-ups.
Otherwise completely original.
