19C English Oak Cabinet of Nice Proportions


ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS Early 19th Century…..Renaissance Style………English Oak Cabinet of Nice Proportions.
The natural Patina on this cabinet is simply STUNNING.
This is an English provincial piece. Constructed circa 1810….but incorporating 2 carved and beveled panels from the 17th Century.

The Top of the cabinet has an indented carved molding on front and sides. The edges of the plain top are bevelled. 3 drawers to the top with indented and fluted edges and round wooden pulls. The 2 base doors each have differing styles. The one to the right (smaller one) has carved acanthus leaf hand carving and the one to the left (larger one) is multi-paneled. We are of the opinion that this piece was made in the early 19th Century but the craftsmen incorporated these 2 panels from earlier pieces. Most likely 17th Century pieces judging by the style. In particular the larger door is very Jacobean in style and nature. Lovely original brass escutcheons on the drawers.It has its original locks but no keys.

You will struggle to find another one like it !!!

The Jacobean style is the second phase of Renaissance architecture in England, following the Elizabethan style. It is named after King James I of England, with whose reign (1603–1625 in England) it is associated. At the start of James' reign there was little stylistic break in architecture, as Elizabethan trends continued their development. However his death in 1625 came as a decisive change towards more classical architecture, with Italian influence, was in progress, led by Inigo Jones; the style this began is sometimes called Stuart architecture, or English Baroque (though the latter term may be regarded as starting later).

Courtiers continued to build large prodigy houses, even though James spent less time on summer progresses round his realm than Elizabeth had. The influence of Flemish and German Northern Mannerism increased, now often executed by immigrant craftsmen and artists, rather than obtained from books as in the previous reign. There continued to be very little building of new churches, though a considerable amount of modifications to old ones, but a great deal of secular building.
