Masterful artistry in woodcarving includes dragons and lion heads, sculpted in solid walnut about 1890 on this corner cabinet from France.
The old finish is in very fine condition. Three dimensional carving was hand chiseled, the background was "tooled" for contrast.
The gleaming finish has been waxed and polished so all that is needed to maintain its antique patina is an occasional wipe with a soft dry cloth.
Exquisite detailing includes the pierced crest and fluted columns. Hardware with embossed faces is original, locks still work.
Measurements of this marvelous historic furniture are 37" wide tip to tip across the front, 7' 2" tall and the radius or side is 28 from the back corner to the tip of each side.
