Description: 

This is a Renaissance Revival walnut cabinet that was custom built. The front exterior is primarily encompassed by two large front doors that swing outward. In the interior are ten narrow shelves with a drawer separating the fifth and sixth shelf. Red velvet lines each shelving unit. The drawer includes a fold-out desk with nine compartments, five of which contain smaller drawers. Two smaller doors, flanking the left and right of side of the main cabinet, open to reveal three shelves. Small drawers are positioned below both of the side doors. The pattern of the walnut is offset by a vertically grained wood. To enhance the walnut pattern an engraved geometric design with a simple oval completes the decoration. There are a total of seven keyholes on this beautiful cabinet. The cabinet was very likely made by Herter Brothers, NYC.
