This spectacular walnut court cupboard from about 1890 descended in the family of a court jester to the Royal House of Denmark, and has traditional hand carved sculptures of jesters.
Only the jester could be totally honest with the king without repercussions, so the "official comedian" post was a great family honor and an important post.
The artistry in this solid walnut cabinet from around 1890 shows remarkable detail. Carving in high relief includes a scene of dragons, fruit and grape vines. Faces and fluted columns are masterful.
The restored finish is in excellent condition, and the marble top has been polished and given a protective finish. Cast brass hardware is original, hand dovetailed drawers have solid oak sides. Original door locks have working keys.
In the center is a display gallery at the back. Interior shelves in the upper section adjust on wooden supports. This European heirloom furniture disassembles for easier moving.
Size is 60" wide, 24" deep, 99" tall and the base surface is 30" high.
