The most characteristically Spanish furniture of the early periods in its history are cabinets, called "Sacristy" meaning a cabinet which was used by the priests to store their vestments and any vessels used in their services. The hangings and altar linens a were also stored in these cabinets.
The carving on this one is so beautiful that you have to see it up close to really appreciate it.
The two door panels on this beautiful miniature reproduction are decorated with a relief carving of the king and queen of Spain. The sides of the cabinet have been carved and the plinth decorated with the same carving as the two drawer fronts in the frieze.
The door and drawer handles are faux iron rings. The top of the cabinet is decorated with a molded cornice. A similar molding with carved reeds has been used under the door section of the cabinet. The cabinet is supported on banded lyre shaped trestle ends sitting on ball and claw feet. A carved medallion joins the two cyma curves that form the lyre shape and the faux metal iron brace acts as a spreader bar between the trestle ends.
The cabinet measures 6 inches high x 4 inches wide x 1 1/2inches deep and is in a walnut finish
