Antique Dutch Renaissance Oak Cabinet

US$20,247.66

About

This extraordinary cabinet is made of the finest oak in the tradition of the Dutch Renaissance during the “Dutch golden age” This cabinet is made in the Provence of Utrecht circa 1710. The arched doors are typical for this province and this type of cabinet is also known as “Utrechtse Poortkast”. The cabinet stands on three ebonized bun feet in the front. This cabinet is enriched with handsomely carved patterns and mahogany inlaid panels. The carving depicts elements that represent prosperity and classic ornaments. The top corniche depicts a central heart flanked stacked coin motif ending in acanthus leaves. The top of the doors are decorated with a central basket of flowers flanked by C-scrolls and acanthus motifs. Throughout the front, many parts have mahogany veneered decorations. The mahogany was imported by the VOC from Indonesia and was a real showcase for wealth. The cabinet has the original hinges and lock. The interior houses two fixed shelves. The upper self has two drawers underneath and the lower shelf has one wide drawer. Overall this piece of furniture is in very good antique and authentic condition with great patina. It has undergone minor repairs to the back cladding and lock in our workshop. Also, the wax coat was freshened up to restore its original luster. The Dutch golden age the 17th century was an important century for the Netherlands. The region separated from the Spanish Empire and formed its own republic. Dutch merchants established their first colonies in the Americas and opened up trade networks around the world. The Dutch economy flourished as much of Europe's trade began passing through Amsterdam. This money helped foster the arts, leading to the rise of Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Rubens. This was the Dutch Golden Age. The strong Dutch economy and celebration of the arts provided the financial and cultural security to inspire middle and upper-class citizens to buy lots of furniture. This was a big change from sparsely furnished homes of medieval times. Dutch patrons demanded high-quality, comfortable, and stylish products, and furniture makers obliged. Dutch furniture of the 17th century was lighter, more comfortable, and more versatile than in many other parts of the world. A key form of Dutch furniture in the 17th century was the cabinet, a taller furniture item that had replaced ground-level medieval chests. Cabinets were essential furniture items in most Dutch homes, as well as in the Dutch colonies. Since cabinets were generally used to hold valuable items like linens or silverware, they were works of art themselves, and we see some of the most important styles of Dutch furniture applied here.
