Introducing for sale a magnificent late 18th century Adams demilune English/Irish side cabinet with painted neoclassical scenes, floral medallions, and garlands attributed to William Moore. The conforming top sits over a freize mounted with giltwood carvings and centered with a figural inlaid panel. There are two long drawers over a cabinet closing with reeded tambour slides. The sides of the cabinet feature hand painted medallions heavily framed in giltwood molding. It is raised on tapering carved legs.
The cabinet is exceptional in every detail from the incredible satinwood grain to the finely executed paintings and carved elements to the perfect proportions.
It is in excellent age appropriate condition with minor lifting of veneers and minor paint and gilt loss. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries we know that the cabinet was owned by Louise Fletcher of the Fletcher family (of Indiana) and possibly graced their family home Laurel Hall.
