Guest Book
From our European Collection, a very fine Napoleon III gilt bronze mounted lacquer side cabinet, late 19th century. Elegantly constructed with black lacquered wood, gilded bronze adornments along the top, side, and bottom friezes, and a wonderful central bronze plaque of frolicking cherubs, all surmounted by a veined off-white marble top that appears to be original. Comes with original functioning key.

Size and Condition" 41 inches in height, 34 inches in depth; 16inches in depth. Overall condition is excellent, however the central door seems to have warped from age somewhat and tends to stick. Other light but reasonable wear from age and use, and it's quite possible the black lacquer has been retouched in various places, but all done to wonderful effect
