Rare Tortoiseshell Cabinet, Antwerp Work, Flanders, 17th Century

Rare tortoiseshell cabinet, opening by eight drawers and a central door opening to a parterre theater in geometrical decoration alternating with tortoiseshell and ivory (six columns enclosed around four mirrors, the upper part containing two small drawers).
Coniferous wood core, rosewood drawers, hinges and door lock with original gilding.
The cabinet is in wood veneer on the top and on the sides, and the cabinet maker knew skilfully how to use the flame of each tortoise shell.
Two wood rods of the lower drawer redone (painted wood), two key holes of lock re-done, the key is not the original one.
19th century stand with the re-use of the twisted gilded original columns.
Very beautiful Antwerp work of the middle of the 17th century.
