Dutch Louis XVI Mahogany Cabinet

This is an impressive linen press cabinet. It consists of two beautiful doors on the front with raised oval panel doors and four carvings fitted to make a rectangular panel. The molding covering the separation is wood and hand-carved. Open the doors to reveal shelves and four drawers, and the bottom two have folding tray pullouts. Above the doors are two finials, one in each corner. In the center is a carved pediment with finial giving an elegant look. The top section has reeded columns and angled corners. This is resting on a three drawer base (nice hardware) with shaped corners, heavy moldings, scrolled carvings, flamed mahogany and resting on tapered and reeded feet. Very good quality of Dutch furniture.
