Lot Essay


This side cabinet and the following lot are decorated in the 'antique' manner of the 1770's with inlaid tablets and medallions of Japanese black lacquer decorated in gold with birds and flowering shrubs. The tassle-festooned medallions hang from ribbon-ties and correspond to the drapery festooned escutcheons. In 1780, the Hague cabinet maker Matthias Horrix, who specialised in this genre supplied related furniture to Princess Wilhemina; and one such cabinet a l'antique... finely inlaid with East Indian lacquer, was advertised in the Haagshe Courant, in 1797 (see R. Baarsen, Dutch Furniture, Amsterdam, 1993, p.61)
