SGD 11,000

A stunning Portuguese colonial rosewood cabinet with dentil carving on the cornice above a plain frieze. The floating panels of the doors are dome shaped and carved with reeding (tall, straight lines). The borders of the panels are carved with a design of scrolling vines with bold flowers and leaves issuing from a central flowerhead at the base of the cabinet. At the top,Fleur-de-Lis carving in the corners. The cabinet is supported on a base defined by a reeded band punctuated with square leave carving in the corners, which sits on four sectioned inverted cup feet ending in a small bun.  The interior of this exceptional cabinet is fitted with three shelves. For ease of transport it consists of two parts.

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.
