Every surface of this showpiece wine cabinet is curved or rounded. Its outer signature is the trompe l'oeil image on the doors featuring a classic scene of a glass of wine and tray of grapes. Inside, intricate veneer work surrounds a six bottle wine rack, glass and accessory storage. The wine theme continues inside the cabinet. Marquetry grape vines decorate the open doors. Pivoting drawers under a functional wine rack, open to reveal a hidden marquetry coaster. Patinated silver leaf, a blue sodalite inlay and mother of pearl butterfly add an artistic surprise. As you view the close ups of the complex inset marquetry on the front doors of the wine cabinet. Note that all the veneers used to create this still life image are natural, reflecting the true colors of the respective woods.
