Superb, all original R. J. Horner vitrine. Rarely do we find complete, original, high end furniture that is truly new to the market. Fresh from an estate, this piece has been handed down in one family since it was new. An excellent example of fine American furniture (Horner is a very well regarded NYC maker) in a French taste. This lovely china cabinet has the nicest cast gilt brass detail I have seen, especially the two level top frieze in which the "curtain and tassel" portion juts out about 3/4" over the the undulating leaf and curlicue that band the top of the glass portion. As seen in the pictures, even the back of the cabinet has the curtain and tassel trim, across the top and directly over the original RJ Horner tag. The display cabinet is solid mahogany in it's fine, smooth original finish with only some minor light areas probably from sun exposure. All original curved glass and two glass shelves. Original fancy key and working lock. The back is lined with fabric in very good condition. The top has a brass gallery and a stone top surface that may be faux finished to look like pink and gray marble, both are in fine original condition. No missing or broken pieces, glass, wood or brass. Excellent patina on both the brass and wood. 55" tall x 27" wide x 13 1/2" deep.
