FRENCH 18TH CENTURY STYLE JAPANESE CABINET
French 18th century style Japanese cabinet
Cabinet frame made by Vosges with the use of antic lacquer panels.
These panels were part of a damaged screen.
Solid Oak and plywood frame, lacquer finishings
The taste for oriental decoration grew in France in the middle years of the 18th century.
Cabinet-makers re-used the lacquer panels to fabricate new French furniture.
East Asian lacquer continued to influence European art throughout the later 19th and the 20th centuries.
