A Dutch Rococo style painted wood vitrine cabinet from the 19th century, with glass doors, rocaille-carved crest and bombé chest. Born in the Netherlands during the 19th century, this painted vitrine features an eye-catching molded cornice, adorned with an elegant crest carved with a C-scroll, flowers and foliage. The delicate curves of the cornice gently lead our eye to the volutes punctuating the upper section of the cabinet. Two doors with glass panels and canted sides make up the top part, and open to reveal four inner shelves offering ample storage opportunities to display decorative objects such as plates and platters. The lower section presents a three-drawer bombé chest, whose sinuous lines in the façade contrast beautifully with the linearity of the back. The ensemble, painted in a soft grey color, is raised on four feet, the front ones being paw feet. With its lovely Rococo lines and great proportions, this 19th century Dutch vitrine will be a strong focal point in any home, perhaps placed in a living room, foyer or dining room.
