An exceptional Drinks Cabinet, late 19th century, of box form, the rosewood meticulously inlaid in mother-of-pearl with a profusion of butterflies, flowers, tendrils, birds, bats, tree rats and fish, the lid with the initials 'J.D.', the apron well carved with scrolling clouds, with key , 34.5cm wide 25.5cm deep 30cm high Quite how the very fine lines of mother-of-pearl were achieved is not known. Very many examples are missing sections, but this particular example is almost pristine. It is impossible to determine where the gilt metal glass and decanter holders were made, but they are probably European imports. The glass itself is probably French. 清十九世纪末 红木嵌螺钿花鸟图酒柜
