Small Indo-Portuguese Reliquary Hanging Cabinet

Ref: C1622

This wonderful, early piece was carefully hand crafted with a moulded, broken pediment crest over two slightly arched doors. The sole decoration on the front comprises a thumbprint carved border around the doors. Surprisingly, the doors open to reveal no back, but wonderful, folk art painting on each side, depicting twining red flowers on a soft green ground. It is a charming piece of provincial furniture.
