A 20th-century reproduction of an 18th-century, Georgian lacquer, and Japaned corner cabinet. The cabinet is topped with a swan neck pediment and sits atop bracket feet. The Japaned decoration depicts a village scene by a creek. A technique that was traditionally achieved by cutting out the elements in the lacquer and then filling them in with layers of gesso to then by painted and gilt. Cabinets of this style were often lacquered in either black, red, green, or cream. The earlier examples of Japaned Georgian furniture were crafted by makers in England and then sent to Japan to be lacquered as the formulas for lacquer in Japan were far superior to those in Europe. 

Two corner cabinets are currently available.

Dimensions: 214cm H x 101cm W x 64cm D
