19th C. Louis XV Carved Giltwood And Mahogany Vitrine
The vitrine rests on cabriole legs and the wooden panels are accentuated with giltwood carved garlands. This is a formal piece, very elegant and the giltwood carvings are of exceptional quality. It is in excellent condition with an age separation to the lower panels in the front door and age related wear to the mirror. We like these charming discrepancies and avoid tampering with something age has imparted if the structure is not impacted.
Vitrines have been popular since the late 18th century as showcases for displaying breakable or valuable Objects dArt. They were often fitted with a back mirror to enable the viewer to see all sides of the showcased object, and also with locks to protect the valuables inside from prying hands.
Size: 78 ½ Height by 33 1/2 Width by 18 ½ Depth.
