Frankfurt am Main, around1730
On a coniferous carcass‚ the large cabinet is veneered With walnut and burl walnut on all three sides. It has preserved the original fittings in the centre with remnants of old gilding.
The elaborate shape of the wave construction is reinforced by the particularly strong corner solution. The name "Frankfurt nose cabinet" is due to these corner solutions.
The furniture shown here is of particularly high quality cross veneered in the most beautiful, valuable burl wood and the movements of the wave and nose architecture give it great strength.
