The leaf, chip carving below the drawers and at the ends is fine and crisp. Excellent colour and patina. Second half of the 17th century.
This cupboard is rare being of such small proportion. It displays excellent chip carving and ironwork for which Spanish furniture is so well regarded. The colour and patina, particularly of the one piece top, are excellent.
