This stunning antique Victorian ebonised pier cabinet is a true rarity. It has been accomplished in ebony and has amboyna inlaid panels. Amboyna is an exotic and valuable veneer. The wood known in Indonesia as amboyna is the burl of the tree, named after Ambon, where much of this material was originally found in the 18th and 19th century. Amboyna was finely sliced to produce an extremely decorative veneer used in the making of exquisite furniture for wealthy Victorian gentry. Adding to its truly unique character, it is decorated with exquisite gilded ormolu mounts and is further embellished by the addition of a hand- painted French Sevres porcelain plaque.It dates from around 1880, and is in excellent original condition. It will benefit from being repolished and this will be done before delivery, and is included in the price.One cannot overstate the truly unique opportunity to own such a delightful cabinet at.Measurements:Height 110 cm x Width 107 cm x Depth 36 cm
