This elegant small china cabinet or curio cabinet is also called a vitrine. Notice the use of applied brass décor and finely inlaid satinwood for accent! There is a cast brass delicate looking gallery along the top followed by a band of brass beading and another larger band of brass trim. The sides are curved glass and the front door has a gentle curve as well. How elegant! Notice additional brass decorative beading and trim framing the glass and on either side of the side glass. The door retains its original brass key escutcheon and working lock with key. Inside are 2 glass shelves. The 2 glass shelves will accommodate items up to 11” tall and the bottom velvet covered shelf up to 12” tall. There is a hidden storage area below which measures 9 ½” tall. Notice the 3 delicately inlaid curved panels below displaying scrolling vines and classical urns. There are additional applied brass decor framing the panels and more banding below. The slender serpentine shaped legs have cast brass décor at the top and along the feet. The vitrine is beautifully proportioned and extremely well executed. The original mirror back has some loss which is noted in the photos. This does not distract from its presence and is common in curios of this period. The glass is original and in excellent condition. The finish is also original and in excellent condition. What a beautiful cabinet to store and display your treasures.
