A well-appointed home in Provence should have a place to display the family's most cherished heirlooms, and the vitrine was the method of choice! Hand-sculpted from fine French walnut, this example boasts a chapeau de gendarme cornice, a basket of wildflowers in full relief with bas relief floral and foliates adorning the remainder of the facade, plus a Romanesque urn on the finely sculpted apron. A musical theme, however, was used for the lower door panels, and one can even see notes carved in the musical score!
Circa 1890s.
