This exceptional English vitrine features the stylistic elements associated with the famed English furniture designer Thomas Sheraton, considered one of the three most influential English cabinetmakers along with Thomas Chippendale and George Hepplewhite. Crafted of elegant satinwood, the vitrine demonstrates the enduring influence of classical antiquity on English furniture design. Sheraton's book The Cabinet-maker and Upholsterer's Drawing-book left a lasting legacy on English aesthetic tastes.

Sheraton revival style grew in popularity during the Edwardian era. Much like other Edwardian styles, it elevates rectilinear forms, architectural bodies with column-shaped legs, light and elegant frames and a preference for wood inlays and veneers. This vitrine features painted allegorical scenes and is chased with floral and ribbon motifs. Elegant and refined, this vitrine remains a testament to the beauty of a bygone era.
