    This is a beautiful example of a seventeenth century Florentine walnut carved and inlaid cabinet believed to date from c.1600. The cabinet has two upper drawers above a cupboard with two doors and one shelf incorporating an antique door hook. The cabinet is inlaid with ebony and boxwood parquetry borders, edged with carving and stands on a console base The remains of a typed label attached to the rear of one of the drawers indicates that the cabinet was imported from East Flanders by Barling of Mount Street Limited, of 112, Mount Street, London W1 , Specialists in the Sale of Early Furniture and Works of Art, a dealer well known by collectors, many of whom frequented the area.

     
    When the cabinet came to us it was standing on the remains of a roughly made and distressed pine box held together with modern round nails. This was removed and replaced with a smaller solid walnut base thus restoring the balance and proportions of the piece and considerably enhancing its efficacy and stability.
