Cabinet, Charles-Guillaume Diehl, c. 1867 - c. 1880

inlay (process), h 136cm × w 120.6cm × d 45.8cm More details

At the 1867 Exposition Universelle in Paris the cabinet-maker Charles Diehl caused a great stir with a jewellery cabinet in a Greek Revival style. This is a somewhat plainer version of that cabinet. All the motifs of the inlaid work on the door refer to Greek antiquity, as do the silvered bronze fittings, which imitate Classical figures and coins.

On display in room 1.15
