Major baroque pompous closet - Brunswick, around 1720




Christian Eduard Franke-Landwers Christoph Freiherr von Seckendorff


Brunswick, around 1720

Nut wood and veined nut wood, massive and inlaid, with its originally preserved, engraved wood, ivory, and tin inlays.

The architecturally divided front of the closet is elaborately decorated with impressive details.

The carved feet and capitals on the columns form the frame for the finely moulded door panels, in which allegoric female figures refer to virtues.

The selected inlays and the masterly workmanship of the intricate marquetry with fine ivory blossoms make this closet a historical example of the Brunswick high baroque.

From Lower-Saxony’s Noble collection.

Height 235 cm, width 211 cm, depth 73 cm.
