Victorian Display Case
This elegant antique Victorian style glass display case, circa 1860, is mounted on a four legged wooden base. The wood of this piece is noted to be walnut. The octagonal turned legs are tapered with rounded ornamentation at the top and base of each leg. The base is secured by an attached "I" shaped wooden support connected to each leg. The cabinet is encased with five panes of beveled glass and an interior glass shelf. Each pane of glass is bordered with the same walnut material and is triangular in shape. Two round metal scroll wreathed knobs flank the left and right hand side of the base of the case. The work is purported to be manufactured by British furniture maker, Johnstone Jeanes & Co., known for their use of fine material.
