About the object

Remarkable and very rare 18th-century Swedish late Baroque chinoiserie corner cabinet, ca 1750 Stockholm.

Embodying the 18th-century European dream of China with its Chinese motifs made in golden and silver leaf. Although this cabinet has been restored and re-lacquered around 1830, which was a common practice at the time, its quality is outstanding both in terms of craftsmanship and painting.
