This cabinet was probably made for a Dutchman on the east coast of India, the so-called Coromandel Coast. Its shape is decidedly Dutch, while the decoration is Indian. VOC officials moving on to their next post sometimes took along their expensive furniture. As a result, these ebony cabinets with large carved floral motifs also became extremely popular in Batavia.
