Cabinet, anonymous, c. 1685 - c. 1700

wood (plant material), h 203.0cm × w 181.5cm × d 62.0cm More details

The maker of this cabinet decorated it entirely with marquetry, some of which imitates stone. The flower vases, for example, seem to stand on a marble tabletop, which is actually made of little pieces of fancifully burled birch. Besides wood, bits of bone have been used to fashion the white and green flowers that enliven the cabinet.

On display in room 2.22
