fine vitrine or display cabinet with moulded cornice and frieze marquetry above canted corners inlaid to simulate fluting, with a glazed front opening to reveal three glass shelves, with glazed sides, on square tapering legs.
A high quality vitrine with burr Amboina and what appears ebony and boxwood marquetry. Burr Amboina is a valuable veneer famously used over generations by the ebenist family Hache. Jean-Francois Hache (1730-1796) was the most well-known cabinetmaker of the dynasty. The use of burr Amboina veneer, the elaborate marquetry and design of the bordering bands appear to be a strong reference to Jean-Francois Hache.
