Circa 1690, Indo-Dutch cabinet in rosewood and ebony. It has a large, elaborate cornice with concave shaped, impressed and patterned sections, and a series of lion faces to the top. There are scrolling, carved cherubs below, and ebonised half columns intertwined with rosewood turnings. The centre column moves to reveal the escutcheon, and the door opens to reveal 2 shelves with 2 slides beneath. The central panels of each door are fielded and raised with a mixture of ebony and rosewood, with similar panels continuing around the sides. The breakfront base follows the form of the pilasters, with a single drawer in the base. The flared, sloping plinth continues around the front and sides, and it all stands on 3 massive bulbous feet to the front, and square feet to the sides. It is in excellent condition.

Georgian Antiques was founded in 1978 by John Dixon's brother Padriac in a small shop at Jocks Lodge, Meadowbank in Edinburgh, with John joining the business after finishing college in 1981. The business grew so rapidly, they couldn't keep up with their inventory needs. Their goal has been to create a one-stop-shop where designers can complete an entire project from lighting to furniture to accessories. Scotland's largest antiques warehouse is located in a converted whiskey bond in historic Leith Edinburgh. With 50,000sq ft over five floors we offer a wide range of quality Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian furniture, as well as continental and small decorative items. Our stock is constantly changing.
Georgian Antiques has 2912 antiques for sale.
