The rectangular molded edge top with protruding rounded corners, above two brass molding paneled drawers with brass handles, above two brass molding paneled and carved doors with hand painted Chinosierie scenes, the base with bound reed carved details flanked by turned and fluted columns and on turned and tapering legs.
Inspired by an original larger Chinoiserie Sideboard in the Billiard Room at Althorp by Claude-Charles Saunier, circa 1785-90. The cabinet was supplied together with a matching commode in March 1791 by Paris marchand mercier Dominique Daguerre to George 2nd Earl Spencer (1758-1834). Widely published in furniture history books this cabinet is an excellent example of fine Louis XVI furniture with Chinoiserie.
