Circa 1880, unusual late Victorian birds eye maple cabinet on stand. The top has a castellated effect cornice in the form of flowers, with open fretwork between each of the uprights. Beneath this is a simple beading and a birds eye maple apron, which continues around the sides. At the front are two elongated doors which are pagoda shaped, surmounted by a lozenge shaped section of birds eye maple in the centre. The doors open to reveal a velvet lined interior, fitted out for a collection of ornaments or silver. The inside could be adjusted to suit future requirements. There are 3 silver plated hinges on each side. Beneath the top section is an ogee moulding and beaded fore edge over a single fitted drawer with a similar form as the doors above. The back legs are square, tapering and reeded finishing on splayed block feet. The front legs are cabriole with massive carved roundels on each side, reeding and fluting on the front and finishing on stylish animalistic feet. Good colour and condition.
