This asymmetrical French art deco cabinet dates from the 1930s and is constructed of matched Brazilian rosewood veneers and mahogany. The bright nickel fittings contrast with the warm tones of the exotically figured rosewood. Set on a plinth and lap feet, the cabinet features a full door on the left which opens to reveal shelves. The curved door on the right below the shelf covers a storage space. Finished in a high gloss lacquer, the cabinet is 36” tall, 31-1/2” wide and 16-1/2” deep.
