British Colonial Rosewood Sunburst Glass Front Cabinet

Mid 19th century

A beautiful antique British colonial sunburst glass front cabinet in rosewood with a deep moulded and carved cornice. The frieze with a relief carved fleur-de-lis pattern. The cabinet has double doors with five beveled glass panels within a rosewood frame; they open to reveal four shelves. The sides of the cabinets are both decorated with two carved sunbursts.  The sunburst or Surajmukhi is a typical motif of the state of Gujarat signifying prosperity. The cabinet rests on four melon sectioned inverted cup feet.

The cupboard is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The Indian rosewood that this piece has been made of has a naturally occurring dark shade with a striking grain.
