A Dutch 18th century burr walnut display cabinet

The china cabinet is the most characteristic piece of furniture from the Dutch 18th century.
Porcelain collecting had taken off in the 17th century with the hijacking of Portuguese cargo ships in 1602 and 1604.
The porcelain cargoes, consisting of more than a hundred thousand pieces were auctioned in Amsterdam and Middelburg.
Wealthy citizens at the time could afford to collect porcelain.
At first, porcelain was displayed in and on sideboards, in small open wall cabinets, on ledges and consoles on either side of the mantelpiece and even in special rooms made for furnishing with porcelain. This development continued in the 18th century with the china cabinet.
The china cabinet on high legs is the beginning of this type of furniture.
This china cabinet was made at the beginning of the 18th century, of oak
veneered with walnut burr walnut, with the old patina and with engraved
brass fittings.
The two small doors on the side of the lower cabinet, intended as a
storage space makes this cabinet special.
