wood (plant material), h 128.5cm × w 84.5cm × d 35.0cm. More details

Gole, originally from Bergen in what is now the province of Noord-Holland, established himself in Paris around 1643, where he soon made a name for himself. Already in 1651 he was appointed court cabinetmaker by King Louis XIV. This cabinet is decorated with floral marquetry, an ornamental technique that was probably invented and disseminated by Gole. The small lock plates were originally made of gilt bronze; the little ivory shields were applied later.
