By EDWARD HOLMES BALDOCK

England

circa 1820

The table cabinet is profusely carved with floral marquetry to the top with amboyna and mahogany cross-banding with a butterfly and a weaved basket of flowers. The sides depict an urn with flowers and the two doors to the front display a bunch of flowers with a ribbon in the shape of a bow. Various woods have been used to create this detailed and etched display. The cabinet maker has used rosewood, walnut, harewood, mahogany, boxwood and sycamore in the floral designs. The cabinet doors open to reveal a bank of six drawers with mahogany drawer linings, rosewood knobs and ebony slats. The interior door panels are quarter veneered with mahogany veneers to the interior frames. This magnificent cabinet stands on turned ball feet.
