That’s beautiful! My impression is that the carvings on the dresser are from a much older piece of furniture, from the 17th C and therefore maybe part of an original suite of furniture for this room. That’s just speculation though. It’s a fabulous piece. Quite spectacular. I can’t imagine how many hours went into constructing this cabinet. You’d certainly have to be royalty or nobility to buy a creation like this. @William: I agree, it’s incredibly intricate. @Susan: I wondered whether you would have more information. I think it’s a fabulous piece as well. @Stuart: You, as a woodworker, would certainly be able to appreciate the hours that went into constructing the cabinet!
