A rare and exceptional piece of furniture by the important French designer Pierre Pansart. He is know for his reverse-painted mirror work, and the doors on this cabinet are exquisitely painted to look like sea weed. The wood is intricately carved and lacquered in a pale taupe to contrast with the dark wood on the body of the piece. It dates C 1948. H 36 x L 79 x D 18 inches.
