British Colonial Glass Front Cabinet with Pillars

Early 19th century

A magnificent British colonial glass front cabinet in rosewood with a deep cornice consisting of a wide band of floral carving. The frieze is relief carved in a  wave design with at the centre a carving of mystical birds facing each other. The cabinet has double doors with eight beveled glass panels within a rosewood frame; they open to reveal three shelves. Along the sides of the doors beautiful solid pillars. The base has two drawers, each with a recessed brass handle and carving, and rests on four carved ball feet. The teakwood interior is fitted with three shelves.

The cabinet 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.
