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, who had become a fan of the Gothic Revival style while studying in England. Hillebrand ingeniously combined a range of Gothic elements in the piece, such as the fine wood tracery over the mirror glass and the decorative spires or pinnacles.

On display in room 1.15 Jan Adolf Hillebrand II
