Fine Demi Lune Salon Vitrine

Around 1900

A very del­i­cate Salon Dis­play Cab­i­net veneered in sat­in­wood and rose­wood, adorned with rich band and thread inlays, and ful­ly dec­o­rat­ed with her­ring­bone pat­terns. The vit­rine, craft­ed in two parts, con­sists of a con­sole with four gen­tly taper­ing del­i­cate legs end­ing in brass sabots.

In the low­er part of the Demi Lune con­sole, the four feet are con­nect­ed by a rich­ly dec­o­rat­ed com­part­ment with a cen­tral orna­ment.
The upper crown is beau­ti­ful­ly adorned with band and thread inlays, encir­cling the cen­tral fields with her­ring­bone pat­terns. Towards the top, the con­sole sec­tion is com­plet­ed with a wave inlay.

The semi­cir­cu­lar dis­play top is three-sided glazed and mir­rored on the back wall. The del­i­cate frames are adorned with band and thread inlays. The dain­ty door, equipped with a small lock, pro­vides access to the inte­ri­or with two glass shelves. The mould­ed upper edge is dec­o­rat­ed with cube mar­quetry.

This par­tic­u­lar­ly fine and del­i­cate salon dis­play cab­i­net is per­fect for small ele­gant spaces, pro­vid­ing a dig­ni­fied frame for col­lec­tor’s items.
Exceed­ing­ly rare to find are vit­rines exe­cut­ed with curved glass, espe­cial­ly when the glass and mir­rors are still orig­i­nal from the time of creation.
