Next Tuesday, on August 10th 2010, Christie's South Kensington is having an Interiors Auction. Always interested in what they have to offer, I was browsing through their online catalogue and discovered this interesting cabinet.
The description says:
A PAINTED AND DECORATED CABINET OF ARCHITECTURAL FORM OF RECENT MANUFACTURE
Modelled to represent a Queen Anne shop frontage, with four mirror glass and glass mounted doors enclosing shelves, the lower section with four frieze drawers above two imbricated drawers flanking two faux drawers to the centre, on bun feet
73½ in. (187 cm.) high; 59½ in. (151 cm.) wide; 17 in. (43.5 cm.) deep
I would love to have this cabinet. It would look great in my kitchen holding my favourite china, or in the bedroom full of linen. Or even better: it could go in my work room, holding all of my materials for miniature making. Of course it could become a 12th scale dolls house, I think the measurements would be just right for that!
