Lot Essay

A very similar goncalo alves (zebrawood) cabinet attributed to Oakley is in the British Galleries of the V & A museum (number W.15:1 to 14-1930) and is also illustrated in Jourdain and Fastnedge, Regency Furniture, 1965, p.80, fig. 186. See also Freeman's, Philadelphia, 21 May 2013, lot 99 for a cabinet from the same Oakley group ($74,500).
