Description

superb and rare Queen Anne (1702-1714) dome top break-arch corner cupboard, mounted with carved gilt-wood finials.
When you start to break down the details deployed by the designer/cabinet maker, it shows how accomplished the technical aspects are of this relatively simple piece. The book matched figured walnut break-arch door is surrounded by a double cross banding of walnut, a double inlay of feather-banding, terminating to a shape known as ‘cyma recta’ or ogee, which is outlined by an inset cross grain moulding of the same form, and a further banding of cross-grain walnut, feather banding and edged with a cross-grain single step ovolo. Veneers of cross grain walnut surround the door into canted corners. The transition from the flat surface into canted corners is cleverly edged with feather-banding, with half the banding being inlaid to each surface. Finally, carved gilt-wood finials of urn and flame form are mounted on solid chimneys of walnut.

Condition
Superb condition, it is possible that the gilt wood chimneys are of later date. The beautiful engraved gilt escutcheon appears to be original.
