Black Painted two door Directoire period cabinet with original glass upper and brass inlay details, French circa 1800. This is a wonderful example of this 15 year period between the end of royal rule and before Bonaparte took control. The simplicity of the piece lends itself to an almost contemporary style but it is a reaction to the opulence of the previous period as well as growing middle class that had a desire for beautiful furniture that could be made quickly.
French circa 1800
