This particular vitrine, with mahogany casework tailored to the Louis XVI manner, has been lavished with jewelry quality bronze dore and a brass rim around the top. Glazing on three sides means you don't need electric lighting inside. Support is provided by subtly scrolled legs with bronze dore mounts, but perhaps the most appealing aspect are the three hand-painted original works of art on the lower panels of the three sides, depicting romantic scenes reminiscent of 18th and 19th century courtiers.
Circa 1890s.
Measures 59 x 25 x 13.5.
