Antique Italian Style Ormolu Walnut Bookcase Drinks Cabinet
Decadent Ormolu walnut veneer glazed cabinet with marquetry decoration. To add to the faded grandeur of this piece we have wallpapered the internal back panel with wallpaper by Martin Lawrence Bullard for Cole & Sons. We haven't overly restored this piece, to retain it's fashionably shabby look, has some chipped veneer particularly along the bottom edge and the paint is chipped and worn on the top edge. Marquetry appears to be intact though and structurally sound. Has a lock and key. Originally had ormolu mount on the bottom of the side pillars as well as the top, but one was missing, so we removed the remaining one so it looks symmetrical, you can faintly see the marks where the were.
