Circa 1900, unusual exhibition quality Louis XV style music cabinet, stamped with the maker’s name ‘J & T Scott, 10 George Street, Edinburgh’. The freestanding piece has various combinations on the front, sides, and back. The front of the piece has a set of six drawers with very stylish Rococo beadings and cast brass and ormolu mounted Rococo handles, and a panel which is framed with Rococo and foliate carving. On the right hand side of the cabinet is an open section which could be used for storage. Beneath that section there is also a fielded panel. On the left hand side there is a polished fielded panel again in the Rococo style, and the back is polished with similar carving. Beneath the whole piece there is a stylish shaped apron which runs around on all sides, and the whole piece stands on four squat Queen Anne feet. A good piece of Edinburgh-made furniture.
