This cabinet, richly mounted in gilt bronze, is one of the most opulent and harmonious pieces of furniture from Carlton House. It was undoubtedly commissioned to show off the colourful plaques of porcelain, which are likely to have been purchased directly from the Sèvres manufactory by Dominique Daguerre, who may have had a hand in their design. 

Probably acquired c.1790
