Cupboard, Hermanus Heuvel, 1787

silver (metal), h 12.8cm × w 9.2cm × d 3.2cm More details

Hermanus Heuvel is renowned above all for his largescale silver objects. This cupboard is his only known miniature and must thus have been a special commission. Its form closely imitates a large wooden cupboard: the drawers and doors can open and the silversmith has even copied the construction. The doors consist of two panels, affixed to each other on the inside by tenon-and-mortise joints.
