Mueble enconchado, or mother-of-pearl-inlaid furniture, was a sumptuous and highly sought-after style in Colonial Latin American society, which originated in the Spanish Philippines in the early 17th century. Possibly the most celebrate piece of furniture decorated in this technique was a wedding gift for the grand-daughter of the Viceroy of Peru and is now in the Dallas Museum of Art (H. Hayward, World Furniture, New York, 1965, p. 106, fig. 371). A further relating cabinet is illustrated in J. Rishel and S. Stratton-Pruitt, The Arts in Latin America 1492-1820, 2006, pp. 491. Dated to the 18th century it is now on display in the Museo Pedro de Osma in Lima Peru.
