Regency Gilt Bronze Mounted Folio Cabinet

22 ins wide, 15 1/2 ins deep and 29 1/2 ins high


Folio cabinets are essential for dedicated bibliophiles and are often used by musicians to store precious sheet music. This particular example is of exceptional quality finished to all sides, with gilt bronze decoration and extraordinary cast gilt feet. The fine quality turnings are enhanced by the rosewood inlays and casters that can support a substantial weight. With the original compartment dividers this piece appears to be a special commission from an excellent London firm.
