Lot Essay

The finely relief-carved ebony panels combined with the rich and stage-like interior in the Flemish manner is typical of the oeuvre of Jean Macé, from Blois. Trained in the Low Countries he has been credited with many similarly decorated cabinets, including the Endymion Cabinet in the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
