Stock No: 15555

A pair of late Victorian display cabinets, ebonised and chequer inlaid with amboyna and purplewood, in the Aesthetic Movement style. Each cabinet has running gilt brass mounts, a baluster gallery above a pair of glazed doors enclosing two adjustable shelves, over a bevelled mirror inset back panel and ring turned front columns, with a chevron inlaid frieze below, above a pair of glazed doors enclosing two shelves each.

Provenance:
By family repute the cabinets were made by the great grandfather of the previous owner. His surname was Savigear and evidently he executed them whilst he was working for the Soho based cabinet making firm of Frauer and Sons, most likely during the 1890s. Frederick Frauer appears listed as a cabinet maker located on 46 Greek Street, Soho, in the Dictionary of British and Irish Furniture Makers, 1500-1914.
