The young cabinetmaker Jan Hillebrand displayed this Gothic Revival cabinet as a showpiece at the 1844 exhibition of decorative arts in Leeuwarden. His ambition was rewarded, for the cabinet was purchased by King William II, a fan of the Gothic Revival style. Gothic elements are combined in the piece, such as the fine wood tracery over the mirror glass and the decorative spires.

On display in room 1.15
