Cabinet, anonymous, c. 1690 - c. 1710

oak, inlaid with rosewood, ebony, olive, holly and bone, h 221cm × w 192cm × d 63cm More details

This cabinet is inlaid with marquetry forming geometrical patterns and stars fashionable among an earlier generation of Dutch cabinetmakers. A new feature is the narrow borders built up of minuscule pieces of wood. Quite a few comparable cabinets are known, all featuring these curious borders. Perhaps they were all made in the same large workshop.
