The Spring Season is recalled by this cabinet, with its birds attending flower-vases that are presented on acanthus-wrapped stands. Relating to Flemish cabinets, executed in the Louis XIV Roman fashion, its ornament is partly inspired by the Livres de Divers Ornemens de feuillages, issued by A. Ducerceau (d.1710). Amongst the London cabinet-makers working in this fashion were Thomas Pistor (Father and Son), whose 'flowerd table' invoiced in 1684 to James Grahme, likewise featured urn-based Solomonic pillar-supports. The latter formed part of a Bedroom Apartment window-pier set that is now at Levens Hall, Cumberland, and included a mirror and candlestands. It is possible that the present cabinet formed part of the suite of furnishings of the same apartment.
