Lot Essay

The circular blossom marquetry reflects the early influence of Japanese motifs and relates closely to that on a wardrobe made by Herter Brothers between 1875 and 1883, now in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and illustrated in Katherine S. Howe, Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen, and Catherine Hoover Voorsanger, Herter Brothers: Furniture and Interiors for a Gilded Age (New York, 1994), p.195. For a virtually identical cabinet very likely made en suite with the present lot, see Fontaine's Auction Gallery, Pittsfield, Massachusetts, 29 September 2007.
