The vitrine is crafted from ormolu mounted mahogany in the French Neoclassical style. The cabinet is comprised of three bays: a large central bay and two smaller, shallower flanking bays, each of which features a single glazed door that opens to reveal three glass shelves and a mirrored backboard.
The structure of the vitrine is articulated using the language of classical architecture: the base, raised on ormolu mounted toupie feet and containing three drawers, supports ormolu mounted fluted mahogany columns, each column flanking a door. The columns appear to support the entablature of the vitrine, the entablature of the central bay surmounted by an ornate, crested crown. The entablature is adorned with a host of classicising ormolu mounts, including a central emblem comprised of a laurel wreath wrapped crossed quiver and torch, as well as cornucopias, friezes of rinceaux, and pinecone finials.
The vitrine is a truly spectacular example of the Neoclassical style and a superb piece of late 19th Century French craftsmanship.
