Rare Anglo Indian Monghyr Ivory Inlaid Ebony Miniature Cabinet

Ref: C2175

This is an antique table-top cabinet with beveled glass, double doors over two small and one larger drawer. Notice the interesting, small brackets flanking the doors. Of the highest quality, this little piece is a treasure for discerning collector and a centerpiece for a special room. Catering to the tastes of Europeans traveling on the route between Calcutta and Delhi, the remarkable artisans of Monghyr (Munger) created small furniture pieces of rare ebony, intricately inlaid with ivory tracery; the finest of artistry.
