Cabinet on stand
German or Dutch cabinet. Cabinets on stands were popular pieces of furniture during the 17th and into the 18th centuries. The cabinets were often very decorative, and were sometimes designed to house specific collections such as medals or jewels. This example is typical of late 17th century design, with the baluster turned legs joined by a cross stretcher, and the cabinet itself inspired by classical architecture, with Doric pillars and ruined landscapes depicted in marble on the drawer fronts. Cabinets such as these were a virtuoso display of craftsmanship and would have been given a prominent place for display.
