A lacquer cabinet, late 17th Century.

Landscapes decorate the top panel, the sides of the cabinet, the front and reverse of the doors and the front of the ten interior drawers; unusually, a pair of mandarin ducks and some  butterflies in flight are the only forms of fauna to appear in the decoration; the cabinet has very fine engraved gilt-metal strap hinges, corner mounts and escutcheon plate and is on a contemporary English carved gilt-wood stand, 90.4cm by 69cm by 52.5cm.
