An Aesthetic Movement Ebonised Parcel-Gilt Display or Apothecary Cabinet
A stunning Aesthetic Movement Ebonised Parcel-Gilt Display or Apothecary Cabinet from the Victorian period. Having a shallow moulded decorated cornice above a shelved niche flanked by a pair of bevelled glazed doors enclosing shelves. The cupboards having a period gilt paper applied. The projecting base with three frieze drawers which have patent locks sit above open under tiers. The turned supports are beautifully decorated with floral and parcel gilt decoration. Cabinets of this kind are becoming increasingly rare. It’s quintessentially beautiful with its bevelled glass and wealth of reeded columns and carvings. This piece would look equally stunning in a residential or commercial/retail space. We can imagine this sitting perfectly in a perfumery, period shop setting, cocktail bar, private club, barbers, jewellers, in fact, the list is endless.
