Press Release - 18 October 2010
This style of furniture derives its name from the Dutch William III of Orange and his wife, Mary II, who became joint monarchs of England in 1689. The cabinet on stand was a highly prized piece of furniture in the 17th century and the cabinet we have on offer is a fine example of the craftsmanship of the period; the fitted interior conceals numerous hidden compartments and despite it’s age, it still serves as a functional and aesthetic piece of furniture.
A William and Mary amboynas, burr walnut and inlaid cabinet on stand, late 17th/early 18th century
R 35 000 – R50 000
