Dutch Cabinet on Stand



Dutch Cabinet on Stand

A small cabinet on four torqued legs that end in oblate spheres. The cabinet has two paneled doors and a drawer with two handles. The decoration consists of carved festoons.
The interior has three shelves and a drawer.
Traditionally this type of cabinet was used for a baby’s layette. This is why the cabinet is decorated with pommygranates and grapes that symbolise fruitfulness and roses and sunflowers to represent love and unfaltering devotion.
