This type of cabinet was made in the area of Friesland and is called an ‘Amelander cabinet’ after the island in the north of the Netherlands.
The cabinet has a profiled top over a completely smooth surfaced frieze. The cabinet is carved with massive Ionian columns with ribbed shafts. To separate the doors pilasters are used with heavy riling and ionic capitals. The doors are decorated with carved arches and florals. The locks are hidden behind the pilasters, which can be pushed to the side to reveal the keyholes.
