eiken- en ebbenhout, h 200.0cm × w 173.0cm × d 74.0cm. More details

This is a so-called boogkast (arched cabinet), named for the large arches on the doors and sides. This one stands out for its Auricular-style decoration, a style of ornament that reached full expression in the work of silversmiths, among them Johannes Lutma. The fluid ornaments were carved in oak with exceptional skill in both the arches and the masks in the frieze.
