British Colonial Glass Front CabinetEarly 19th century
A magnificent British colonial or Anglo-Indian glass front cabinet in rosewood with a deep cornice consisting of a wide band of floral carving. The frieze is relief carved in an intertwining floral design. 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 spirally turned pillars. The base has two drawers, each with a recessed brass handle, and rests on four carved bun 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 off has a naturally occurring dark shade with a striking grain.
