French Early Renaissance Oak Dressoir, François 1st, ca. 1530

The cabinet of canted form with two doors at the top over one center door below and an open bottom with a plafond for display, doors and canted side panels carved with a male and female figure, romaine portraits, stylized animals, vines and flowers, the upper side panels and the lower back with linenfold panels. The elaborate and decorative iron strap-hinges and locks still showing gothic designs, the cabinet appears to be a marriage cabinet and a rare example of the transition from Gothic to the early Renaissance.
