Cabinet, Anonymous, c. 1690 - c. 1700

wood, h 202.5cm × w 160.0cm × d 54.0cm. More details

The inlaid lacquerwork panels of this cabinet came from an early 17th-century Japanese chest with a domed lid. That kind of chest was an expensive rarity; its shape apparently fell out of fashion, which would explain why such a precious object was sawn into pieces and its lacquer reused to decorate this stylish cabinet.

On display in room 2.22
