Antwerp art cabinet

Rockoxhuis

Rockoxhuis

This notable art cabinet is decorated with carefully embroidered depictions of fruit, flowers, trees and poultry on a light silk background. Various embroidery stitches beautify not only the external panels of the two interior doors, but also the inner side of the folding lid and the front panels of the drawers and portico. The interior panels of the doors bear, centred in an oval, depictions of a winged griffon jumping up against a parasol tree, all embroidered in gold and silver thread, as well as coloured silk thread.
