Shipper: RICK HILL (336-848-1214)
An outstanding French curio cabinet from around 1910 has curved glass and the famous frosty "Vernis Martin" finish with lovely and subtle floral hand painted landscape and cherub or angel scenes.
The top has significant wear, there are minor mars and touchups elsewhere, otherwise the finish is very fine and original, see photos.
The key is a handle only, the lock is lost. Plate glass shelves have polished edges, the original back mirror has "smoke" to show its age.
Original curved glass is old and wavy, there is a hairline under 1" crack at the left rear as shown. Joints have small shrinkage separations from age.
Embossed bronze mounts and gallery are exquisite with minor losses on this delicate but sturdy antique furniture from France.
Measurements are 29" wide, 15" deep and 63" tall.
