Item # 905PYX09Q
An exquisite work of visual simplicity against technical mastery. This fine cabinet is crafted of mahogany, ebony and wenge each set against one another in perfect balance. The Macassar in the doors has a dramatic grain full of movement, these planks set in the door frame with grooves to allow for eventual expansion and contraction. These doors open with sculpted ebony pulls and pivot hinges to reveal a shelved interior with a pair of drawers, these both exhibiting the same all-around open dovetailing employed on the sides of the cabinet.
The tight and precise pins, perfect joinery, superior finishing and well-developed form elevate this cabinet from a mere decorative object into the realm of fine art. It is signed JH to the reverse.
