Cabinet, attributed to André-Charles Boulle, c. 1670 - c. 1675
This may be the earliest-known masterpiece by Boulle, the most celebrated cabinetmaker of his time. Boulle perfected the technique of floral marquetry in various woods. The gilt-bronze armorial trophy above the middle door originally contained a portrait of Louis XIV. It was replaced with a likeness of King George I of England (1660–1727).
