A black lacquer and chinoiserie decorated cabinet

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A black lacquer and chinoiserie decorated cabinet, on carved and silvered wood stand, the stand circa 1670, the cabinet, late 17th/ 18th century, the pair of doors opening to an arrangement of drawers decorated with rural village scenes, floral outcrops and birds, the doors decorated with the scene of a dignitary arriving, 169cm high, 125cm wide, 60cm deep In stark contrast to the heavy dark pieces of the 'Cromwellian' period, Carolean furniture offered a colourful blend of sumptuous silks, tapestries, cabinets veneered with walnut and lacquer ware. The effect of these new furnishings created an extravagant look to satisfy the demand for fashionable objects influenced mainly by the French Court. Great houses such as Ham are windows in how this style developed in England. These rich colourful pieces would have only been owned by the very few. Lacquer ware such as the cabinet on stand would have been imported from the East and sold at a high cost. Imitation lacquer or 'Japanned' pieces, and other examples, such as the 'oyster veneered' chest and carved gilt wood table give us an impression of the luxury which was generally beyond the reach of even the middle classes in 17th and Early 18th century England. For related example cabinet on stand see Bonhams, Fine English Furniture, Sculpture & Works of Art, London, 12th March 2014, Lot 202. A cabinet with similarly conceived stand is in the collection at The Vyne, in Hampshire(National Trust) is illustrated in R. Edwards, ed., The Shorter Dictionary of English Furniture, London, 1964, p. 96, fig.16. Another cabinet with similar giltwood stand with comparable legs was sold Sotheby's London 8 July 1994, lot 47.
