Chinoiserie decorated Dutch Linen Press with red lacquer and gilt enamel decoration depicting Chinese figures engaging in various activities in landscape settings. Two-part construction. Top section with Rocaille-carved serpentine pediment and three (3) plinths for displaying vases, over two wide inset ogee paneled doors which open to reveal a fitted interior with linen shelves and drawers. Bombe-shaped lower section contains two short drawers over two long drawers, curved blocked feet and a valanced skirt. Back of case with old label partially reading ARTHUR PIERRE - J. & A. PIERRE ANVERS ANTWERPEN. 98" H x 72" W x 26" D. 19th century.

The Estate of Pia Stratton, Nashville, Tennessee.


Overall good condition with minor wear commensurate with age, the red Chinoiserie paint decoration appears to be a later addition. The locks and pulls are not original to the piece and there has been repair to the mortise and tenon joinery as well as the frame and runners to re-strengthen the top, interior, and lower sections.
