Though at first it appears that this corner cupboard is the pair to Riesener’s, it is in fact a copy made during the nineteenth century using different techniques and materials. However, at some point an attempt was made to make the differences between the cupboards less visible by swapping some of the original gilt-bronze mounts on Riesener’s cupboard with the later overcasts from this one.
