Milanese Renaissance style ebony cupboard, possibly made by Jackson and Graham of London, mid to late 19th century, with profuse inlay decoration; constructed in three sections. Removable Cornice features a double domed pediment, each pediment topped with a classical bracketed plinth and inlaid with mask and classical figures, above an upper shelved section with two doors, flanked and divided by fully turned columns with carved and inlaid capitals, and inlaid with portraits of a young man and young woman (suggesting this cabinet may have been made as a wedding gift). Lower, stepped cupboard section has a molded edge over a frieze with panoramic, silhouetted scenes of putti in landscapes, over two inlaid doors inlaid with circular putti scenes, flanked by inlaid pilasters, atop a plinth base with square ogee molded feet. Heavily inlaid throughout with bone and ivory veneers including foliate and geometric patterns, angels, urns, winged lions, griffins, and other classical motifs. 91 1/2" H x 51 1/2" W x 19 3/4" D. Milanese or English, circa 1870. Note: the underside of the top section retains a Railway Express Agency shipping label dated 1958 (or 1938) showing the piece was shipped from Washington, DC to Chattanooga, Tennessee. A copy of a portion of a 1993 appraisal, dating this piece to the Victorian era with possible attribution to Jackson & Graham, is available to winning bidder.

Property of a Tennessee Religious Institution, acquired 1958 from an antiques store in Washington, DC. Copies of accession documentation available to the winning bidder.


Overall good condition. Original finials are not present. Left corner section of base top molding loose but present. Scattered minor losses, age cracks, and wear to inlay and cabinet due to general use wear.
