Collector's Cabinet, Antwerp, 17th century.
Ebony, wood (oak?) embroidered silk.
Restored, with some imperfections.

Two doors and top lid with locks.
Small upper drawers and one large lower drawer.

The choice of ebony and silk reflect the taste for exotic materials of the 17th century.
Due to the fragility of silk, only very few cabinets of this type have survived.
Central panel, embroidered with a tree motif using a particular relief embroidery technique that imitates the effect of the tree's foliage. Among the embroidered flowers there are carnations and tulips, very popular at the time, and also exotic birds, these are motifs that suggest an influence from the East and the art of the colonies.
Behind the central door there are two small wooden drawers with thread.
The lid opens in the upper part and is divided into three parts inside.
there is a key.
The state of conservation is average, but it has the advantage of not having undergone any changes or significant replacements, neither at the level of textile decoration nor at the level of cabinet making.
