During the early 17th century cabinetmakers from the Netherlands and Germany established themselves in Paris and introduced the art of veneered furniture. This involved covering inferior wood carcasses with thin layers of exotic and expensive woods. This ebonyveneered cabinet is an example of the production that arose at that time. It features carved biblical scenes and has a richly ornamented interior.
