Art Nouveau Antiques
# 4986. A German Art Nouveau Display Cabinet. Size: 57" x 23" x 97.5" tall. In two sections: the upper display cabinet opens only from each side; the glass shelves inside are 10" x 41" long; one mirrored shelf on the bottom and two adjustable glass shelves. The glass shelves, mirrors and brackets are contemporary. The side glass and front glass appear to be period to the cabinet. There are modern halogen lights in the upper display area. The lower section has two drawers and a cabinet which reveals three wood shelves. The wood is veneer oak with strong Art Nouveau flower decorations in relief. Condition: there is some veneer loss and some veneer surface lifting on the top of the cabinet on which the glass cabinet sits. The side doors to the glass cabinet are very tight to open: they lock and there are replacement keys to each side. Not a 'finely' made cabinet piece but very effective. Paper drawer liners indicate that this cabinet came from Remscheider, Germany (the liner is actually an advertizing poster with names of about 30 businesses. The poster appears to be from the 1970's) and we suspect that it was used in some fraternal or military museum for display of historical objects. This cabinet would be an excellent display unit for a collection of glass, pottery or militaria. Price: $5,000.00.
