ART DECO BRASS, GLASS AND MACASSAR VITRINE
Likely France, circa 1930
Item # 802RRK24P
This exquisitely dressed vitrine is highlighted with brass embellishments that are striking agains the dark exotic veneers. These are matched in beautiful symmetrical graining that flows vertically throughout the case under a high-gloss shellac. The tightly sealed lower doors open to view the pair of glass shelves, the upper cabinet with a single glass shelf that can be adjusted only slightly with three notches. The whole rests over an bevelled base finished in an applied brass edge wrap.
