Of particularly fine quality this pair of cabinets exhibit all the refinement and quality of the best pieces of furniture from early in the Regency period. The combination of the rosewood with inlaid brass decoration would have been quite striking when the colour of the rosewood was dark. Now, it has faded to a golden colour and is all the more appealing for it. Unusualy for this form of furniture, there is a drawer to each frieze making them far more functional.
