SOLD: A Rare Late Renaissance Marquetry and Parquetry Oak Livery Cupboard

SOLD: A Rare Late Renaissance Marquetry and Parquetry Oak Livery Cupboard

Quite an impressive petite cupboard of the late Renaissance period, with elaborate and graceful marquetry and parquetry, using different coloured woods inlaid into oak panels and boards.
The three panels are framed by carved arches, with the center one having a double arch and opening as a door.
Above this is a marquetry frieze divided by strapwork corbles and headed by a dental cornice, supported at each end by cluster columns sat on parquetry plinths.
Below is the drawer frieze, carved with strapwork and broken by corbles, again supported on cluster columns on parquetry plinths and shelf rail.

The piece has a rich tactile patina with a soft look, and of small proportions.
Marquetry such as this is sometimes associated with migrant German furniture makers based around Southwark, London.
