Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This rare and unusual side cabinet displays very characteristically the elegance of Viennese Empire furniture from the early 19th century. The white marble top above a long single drawer in the frieze. The door, flanked by two ebonized lyres with carved and painted rams heads, revealing a maple veneered interior, with a single shelf. The attractive burr birch veneer stands in contrast to fine fillets of ebony to give this cabinet a very decorative appearance.
