Two Magnificent Boulle Cupboards
To find two matching cupboards is indeed difficult. The recessed top has two doors that open to reveal aqua paper inside with an upper shelf. (There is some staining on the paper). A great cupboard to display books or fine porcelain and glass! There is one shelf to hold smaller objects and large space below that to hold perhaps two large vases! Below the glass doors is large drawer that is very narrow. Below the recessed top is a larger storage cabinet with another large drawer that is small in height! Wonderful ivory droplets hang down from each end of the cabinet and are mounted so the large storage doors at the bottom can still open. Gold transfer work predominates the front of this piece of furniture. White banding accentuates the various sections of the cupboard.
