Width: 29 ½" 74.5cm & 29 ¼" 74cm
Depth: 15 ¼" 39cm
One of the rarest pieces of furniture we have had the honour of handling; these breathtakingly beautiful cabinets are made of the finest materials by the most skilful craftsmen, and were clearly commissioned by a patron of the utmost discernment.
Their exceptional quality rules out all but the grandest patrons, and the firm evidence for Vile & Cobb's authorship invites comparison with their most celebrated commissions for George III and Queen Charlotte. They would stand proudly in this company.
It is worth looking again at the images we have reproduced, which in no way replicate the extraordinary beauty and charm of these cabinets when viewed in person, but do at least give an impression of how wonderful they are. They are an exceptional opportunity to own a great work of art.
